cigarette kiss

as smoke comes from
your mouth and lips
i taste the nicotine
that makes me sick

the smoke
from your tasteless lips
cigarette tastes
like a kiss

those are the things that I'll miss
they are the parts i wont forget
but looking at our past
i realize i have one regret

several sleepless nights
spent writing on the walls
i wish you were here
to sit and read it all

with paper cuts sliced
on my wrists
just so i can fit
with all the emo kids

I'm sorry for the things i regret
but to live without any
is to be lost in a world of greed
every ones lost but thinks they're not
ill be the first to say
we're all dying in this friendly curse

Jessica Jones Claim this poet

i'm 20 years old and living in Las Vegas, NV. i started writing poetry when i was in 7th grade. It was the same year my mother was diagnosed with cancer and i guess unknowingly i started to write to coupe with my feelings. i know most of my poems seem to be alot about death but you really can't classify them as that because they all have about 3 or more meanings. i've had a rough life with my parent with my mom getting cancer and my dad passing away out of the blue. poetry has been the only thing thats helped me get through all the tough times as well as keep me sane. i hope you all enjoy my work. more…
