I think a cigarette would best help
to describe how i feel,
I'd sit on my patio with my legs drawn
up under me, I'd lean against something
in the grey damp of november
and I'd smoke and let tears fall
as i watch the air
for invisible particles.
paricles of smoke, city grime and of me.
watch the sky for a bomb
smoke
draw and let the tears itch and dry
on my cheeks
that would be the end of detached me,
and I'd burn it and inhale,
how appropriate,
and the taste would stay with me,
my hands my hair, acrid.

I like this poem a lot :)
And you know, I understand why people thing smoking is bad. It's like a slow suicide. But I also think if someone wants to smoke, you should just let them, rather than giving them the same guilt trip about their health that everyone else gives them XD You know? Man, I can only imagine how sick smokers must get of hearing that...

Ugh, believe me, I get it. We know cigarettes are bad for us, so I wish people would lay the crap off. XD Seriously.

Right? Like when I hear someone preaching to a smoker /I/ get offended!

It's really weird. Let people smoke if they wanna smoke, right?

Totslly. As long as they don't smoke in inappropriate places, they're fine.

Like, it is offensive if somebody is smoking with no thought about how the smoke could be going to other people (like secondhand smoke) it's really annoying. But in the right places, it's totally okay, right?

Im glad that i'm not the only person who feels that cigarettes can convey feeling with a sense of art =)
