Loveboro

A Poem by Nebunova

It's like a wisp of smoke 
     Whispered feelings feeding into each breathe
             With every inhale, your soul is clearer
        With every exhale, the end is nearer
             
            
          You're like a wisp of smoke
 Appearing so suddenly
       But in the blink of a blink,
 you've become a spiritual casualty
                                        
 I'm like a wisp of smoke
Enticing to your cranium
A match to spark your sentiments
Then I'm flicked into oblivion
Like a wisp of smoke
I mean it when say I love you
Until those words
become the cracks in the cement I fall through

I really enjoyed this! The repetition really connected each thought which is the purpose I presume. I look forward to reading more of your writing. ;)

thank you redflutterby :)
Cigarettes and love. Old days were a complete pair. Nice to share a cigarette with a woman in a warm bed. I like your use of words. Create good place, thoughts and vision. Nice closure to the excellent poetry.

thank you coyote, much appreciated :)
You've worked the smoke metaphor to perfection, especially in that first stanza with the 'inhale' and 'exhale' images, which are vivid and unique, and you even managed to work in a clever rhyme :) Painfully bittersweet in mood, which also make smoke the perfect candidate for love's fleeting nature...awesome work, I enjoyed and related to this one very much :)

You're very welcome :)
An excellent, unuusal poem that I like,you move away from emotions with fine observations, or to put it a lot better, you transport emotion with a original extended metaphor that fits and fits..great job.
