    dotsthe short life of a cigarettedots

    The life of a lit cigarette is short lived
    but simple as it may seem
    it's life has more meaning
    than what it is lead
    to believe.
    It is selected with random
    and sometimes with no choice at all.
    Then Recognized for what it is,
    a blessing
    a damnation
    a promise to remember
    or a pact to forget.
    It is gently held like a child
    tween two lips
    Be they gentle or rough
    young or old, cared for by makeup
    or torn by scars.
    A fire is lit and the fag adopts
    the sacred life.
    It fizzes and smokes, hisses and whines,
    the tobacco whithin burns steadily
    to become powdery ash, which is deposited
    into a tray and forgotten.
    When everything is burnt
    smoked, corroded in tar
    and rushed to the brain,
    a smoking butt is unceremoniously
    snuffed into a stinky tray,
    or flicked to spark against wet pavement
    So, whatever the occasion
    for meditation,
    after copulation,
    during transportation,
    or for the sheer hell of assossiation.
    Keep in mind it is a part of you,
    and it has given it's life
    to fullfill your needs
    and satisfy your wants.
    So give it a Thanks
    Besides, anyone who would argue
    that a cigarette has no life
    of it's own has never had one
    go out at five in the morning at Dennys

      Very interesting, at first I was wondering where you where going then it kinda made me laugh (listing all the times you might light up). The last part made me think of it as a metaphor for life - well exept for the Denny's part. Allright! That is it my first impression.

      Yeah, this is a good write. I'm smoking a Lucky Strike right now and I'm in heaven. This lines made me laugh tho: "A fire is lit and the fag adopts
    the sacred life."

      An incredibly well written write
    I can see you have strong feelings about smokers rights and I must say I agree with you 100 percent
    I too am a smoker and I think it is ludicris when they start telling you you cant smoke outside
    My Friend I am one who never fully believed this second hand smoke argument
    Dont these people realize smoke disapates once it hits the air
    I could never understand these peoples arguments
    To be bluntly honest I believe there is no truth whatsoever to these second hand smoke inuendos
    Very Well Written and Said
    You struck a nerve in me with this one
    God Bless

    Please allow me to be one of the first to Welcome you to Elite Skills
    I Hope this site brings you all the Happiness it has brought me
    Please if you get a chance Please take a look at some of my writes and let me know what you think
    Thank You
    God Bless
