    dotsThick of My Throatdots

    I never had cancer
    but the memory is there.
    You charred my lungs
    And broke our arc of smiles.
    So I stutter when I inhale

    I wrap my hands,
    tight around,
    the thick of my throat
    and feel the tension building.
    Just like you are slowly,
    with that ciggarette between your lips.

    Can you come over today
    hold my waist,
    and let your fingers, memories, and drunken slurrs rest
    in the small dwellings of my back?

    I can still feel our tension building
    something familiar is jumping from my skin,
    this isn't longing
    it's the consequence of fate
    and one drag too many,
    stuck in a lingering reverie.

      I'm hip.

    in this line:
    "And broke an arc of smiles"

    'arc' seems misplaced, almost as if there's a much better word to go in here.

    The first two stanzas are wicked specific, and the last two seem to drop into a more vague, well, 'reverie.' Take a look and see if you can't make them really punch out from the page and you've got yourself one stellar piece here.

      Lots of spelling mistakes here. I am not going through them in detail but you should always check spellings. I am tired of people saying they don't care about spelling. You may not care. Readers do.

    Despite the spellings, quite imaginative and with some good images.

      I'm guessing that it is a combination of being addicted or attracted to someone who is bad for you but unable to help it...Indeed lust is like a disease that only has one cure.
    It's really hard to know whether this poem needs to be taken at face value or if there is underlying meaning.

      Interesting. I am not sure by your metaphors if you mean this person is slowing killing you are that you are addicted this person. It was a good play on words and I really like the last 4 lines the most. they were what had the most impact to me. This was very well writen and a delight to read. Good job.
