Smoke Of Cigarettes

written by: Haaris Ali Waqas



Though the smoke fogged all I could see,
It made me feel all I could never be;
But I was surely brought down to one knee –
And soon, three;
Harder it got for me to frivolously flee.
When all I craved was future regret,
My hurt heart spoke –
I took another smoke
From my pack of slithering cigarettes.

Now, difficult it is to mask –
The feeble attempts to complete a trying task;
I have help not from someone to ask –
So I begin to barbarically bask.
A year, maybe two months gone –
My sedated eyes woke before dawn;
With my clothes drenched in cold withdrawal sweats,
I reached for another smoke from my pack of slithering cigarettes.
