Cigarette

A Poem by light and ashes

Just like a cigarette you burn me up and burn me out until all that's left is the nasty gritty part that nobody wants.

A sad tale metaphor…..your passion is so strong , you burn me up and then throw me out like ashes from a cigarette….short but meaningful

not really the kind of review I expected to get from this....but thank you!
Sharp, succinct, intriguing - interesting. There is something hypocritically self-serving about an anything that needs be inhaled repeatedly Perhaps what's at core is little or nothing?

That's what I think.......
Very good point.
Some folks can make us want to escape them. I liked how you described the cigarette and life. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

Thank you.
terrifically creative ... to compare family with a burning cigarette. Maybe a filter cigarette next time.
Loved it.

Thank you for understanding, Allen. Only ever a filtered one from now on.
makes me shiver, as cigarettes are gross really, but that is just my opinion. awesome metaphor though.
