Ode to my Cigarette

It is at times like these when I need you the most…
When random thoughts come streaming through my mind…
When I feel I'm breathing through a pinhole…
honey it's not your smoke
it's not your poison
it's not your cancer
it's mine
so let me breathe through you and vent out all of my frustration
let me burn with you bit by bit
for I can burn for you if you may…
slip through my fingers and be my date for the night…
let me wear your blue smoke…
be drenched in your aroma
and do let me burn for you if you may…
hear my silent screams and take them all away
puff by puff
Touch my lips...and speak right through me
take another look at me with those fiery eyes
Quick! Before they come
Quick! Before I'm all burned out…
help me, comfort me
Come, dear cigarette, come.
For I am to man like you are to angels
Hear them not say "You piece of hell
For, dear cigarette, we are both wild and free
leave them to their mates and friends…...
and come with me, come for me…
and let me be your date for the night
Dear cigarette...a world without you is as lonely as hellwith no one staying here by my side
to unleash the tiger inside
Dear cigarette..it is my last breath now
and I can feel you burning inside my mouth
drying up before I can ask...
Have I burned well all through?

Nona it is a nice name Noha isn't? do you mind to call you Nona, it is lovely name Noha also but this name is easier. I read in the newspapaer this morning that two families in Monfia have fighted and 9 persons were be killed. Where is the low in that country? where is the police ? unbeliviebale it looks like middelage, Egypte deserve beter than this. Have a nice day Nona hhaa
