Comments : If Cigarettes Could Talk

  • 5 years ago

    by Decayed

    If cigarettes could talk... I guess they would bit**-laugh at smokers.

    I question, how long
    would it take before
    your thoughts are
    exposed, and the
    betrayal sinks in
    to someone else's
    lips from their
    blaze?

    ^ Beautiful piece, portraying reality... Thanks Liz for bringing this crisis forward through your beautiful poetry.

    Liz, Just when I am turning in for the night, you post this piece and get me thinking all over again...
    That's what I love so much about your poems, they are full of pondering thoughts, not to mention such striking imagery and intense emotion...

    I like this piece mainly for it's message for I am against smoking and this is one of those subjects that gets touchy but is a strong one and a very important one

    Love always Liz
    You rock

    I hate the smoke and I just dont smoke.
    So this poem caught my attention. I was curious to see what it was in it.

    And I would definitively don't trust it.

    Edit: I wouldnt trust the cigaret.

    I love the imagery .......charcoal breath........minds of a chimney.......sensory words to bring the message across -the poet's dislike for smoking ..............and the deeper level-the things we do and why we do it.

    The title is really appealing and I liked how you didn't put a question mark after it because at first glance it seems like a question but I like it more as a statement. Your poem was nicely drizzled with alliteration that didn't overpower the message. It was just right. My favorite part of this poem was the structure. It sets up a nice pace and rhythm when reading it which adds to the overall joy of reading. Your word choice was exquisite because it related to smoking but was weaved in a poetic manner into the piece. It made for some nice imagery throughout the poem. I also liked your use of personification like "minds of a chimney" because it added a more relatable atmosphere to your words. Overall this was a wonderful piece that had me thinking of what cigarettes would say about the people smoking them for they do hold many secrets.

    For all those who smoke:

    IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT YOURSELVES, THEN GO AHEAD AND SMOKE BUT AWAY FROM US! BECAUSE WE WANT TO LIVE IN GOOD HEALTH! AND OH HOW AWESOME IT WOULD BE IF YOU ALL GATHER AND DWELL IN A WORLD OF YOUR OWN! GOOOOOOSH.

    Sorry, had to say this. My ex-boyfriend used to smoke tons of cigarettes a day and I was sick of it. I tried so hard to let him quit smoking but all in vain! Anyway, I wish him all the best now, hahaha. I truly like your poem, I found it original and new! Keep writing, lovely.
