Having a Relationship With A Cigarette


Having a Relationship with a Cigarette

A Poem by TTBoy

With you

In you

I am yours

I am you

Oh, How I love the way

You cough

And my name comes out

At times

I can be too much

At times

I am never enough

God, How I love the way

You light my fire

For all the world to see

How I wish I could

Show the world your heart

From the time you breathe my air

That would make a great start

But you

Are not me

You use me

Until I wither away

And lie with the ashes

On the earth

I am yours

I am you

Oh God, How I love you

There are others in your life,

I’m sure

But each time you touch me

I know that I touch you, deeply

 Heart and soul

I want you

When you want me

               Need me

 What’s so sad is

I’ll be there for you

Even when you’re gone

I am you

I will be you

There’ll be others like you

Others like me

 And I’ll touch them

      as you did me

As I wither

So will you

I want you

When you want me

               need me

Oh God,

    How I love the way

 I kill you
