Did I really need that cigarette either (?)

।। Did I really need that cigarette either (?)।।

Looking at Autumn's face
I nearly caught many unsung dreams
I saw her blank eyes and her messy bun
She could shout at the top
She looked at me
calm and utter intensified
She touched me with a smile
Putting on another cigarette
I hugged all her dreams and dejections
She threw my cigarette and asked if I really needed either !

About this poem

The poem is all about the hopelessness and dejection and at the same time how it can be omitted.
