I Love You/I Hate You

Published: October 2009

You're the love of my life and the cause of my strife
You dirty cigarette
I've made many mistakes in my many days
But you are my one regret
You wooed me with words like relaxing and cool
And I believed it like a silly fool
Now I'm all wheezy, spluttering and choking
All because of the ciggies I'm smoking.
You had me hooked on the very first try
And I love you but I'll hate you till I die
And that day will come more soon than late
If we continue this affair where my lungs are a state
Yes even though it will break my heart
The time has come for us to part
So long my slim and smoldering friend
This is it, this is the end
No more smelly puffs for me
You are now stubbed out and I am free

I love this poem! It really hits home. I've been a cancer survivor for eight years, and I'm still smoking cigarettes. Although, I've been cutting down. Now it's a half pack a day instead of a whole pack. I need to quit all together. Permanently. But it's no easy task. I wrote a poem about alcohol. You really did a good job writing about cigarettes. Thank you for sharing your words. I love your talent. Please keep writing!!!
