10 Steps to learn how to smoke, a guide by someone who gave up their addiction
L. B. Mek said:

\'Now, place it on your lips.
Hold it there, like
unspoken truths that now live
among your regrets.
The pressure light and comforting.\'
this, is an important write!
that\'s been beautifully realised
\'in my humble opinion\'
and I laud, that you stated
it was one to come back to
because your poem
is a diamond, that\'s very close
to its polished best!
thank you! for choosing to share

i love this
also \"dare defy my words and you\'ll suffer the rage of someone who can no longer inflict harm.\" is amazing

\"Tell my why I am addicted to my own haunting.\" This part is very insightful, sometimes I ask myself the same question. Thank you for sharing and I\'m glad you\'re willing to help yourself through therapy, we can only overcome when we have the will to do so.

Wow! \"and I\'ll bleed ink.\" Very powerful! And it rhymes! Nicely done.

\'Feel like shit,
can\'t cope,
won\'t drink,
Can\'t smoke.

Who the fuck am I
to pretend to be sad?
I mean happy.
I mean mad.

I can\'t remember.\'
(oft, there is but a few lane\'s
to traverse in our lives
that, which we can\'t ignore
and those
that build a wall, to our awareness;
if ever, we choose
to walk: with eyes, that question
and heart\'s that never shirk
we\'ll belong to that evolutionary heritage
of inquisitive ancestry
that lost, its capacity - to observe and accept
a role:
as part of \'the mindless herd...\'
There-in, lies
your mind\'s: endless nightmares
questing, for whatever meaning
you can glean of life;
and these Poetry of yours, reads
like a hymn
to the chaos, in your life
a hope for fleeting mercy
from the abundance of hurt, in your inherited circumstances
a chance, to sip a breadth
that doesn\'t ache
once or twice, in a day;
a worded wish, to ease
all the suffering, we
can\'t find the words: to express
let alone, confront!)
thank you for choosing to share, such sincere words
and for inspiring, my little scribbled reply..
I laud your bravery in these brilliant write!

When life\'s big questions marks stare us in the face, at our most vulnerable. I love how you so easily highlight the invisible. Great poem!

Maybe it\'s poets and introverts that do this kind of introspection but these are the kind of thoughts that run through so many of us. Your poem takes us into those thoughts....

Welcome to the club called humanity and learning to accept that superheroes are fiction. Those questions have burned in us all. We just put them away and get on with our shit-load of life making the best of it we can.

It’s sad
I hope you find that girl again
Maybe she still resides inside
It’s intriguing that we can’t go back to who we were
Maybe the circumstances change is too much

Mind bending torment of regret. How life can shape us into places we dont want to be, things we\'d better not see, people we don\'t want to be. And there are memories which are our backbone, the joy of childhood ingrained in our souls.

\'My future home looks a lot
like my childhood bedroom.\'

\'Give me a meaning,
I have tried stealing it
but now
I’m handcuffed to a career.\'

the sheer respect and joy you have for your Art
to produce such a well considered and polished
nuanced work, of profound Poetry)

Good words Meg, it is surprising from where we get our thoughts to put into words.

what cleverly you crafted the lines
A ritual got such intense thoughts
A true poet
Hail and cheers 🥂 to you dear friend
And the last lines made me smile
Should I hang my dreams along
Well crafted dear poet

Very multilayered and reflective. Speaks to a lot of complexities through simple objects. If only detergents and softeners could purge and soften everyday worries and troubles. Absolutely stunning!

Wonder how many people look out their office window and just wonder what the hell happened to them.

I got mixed emotions dear poet…I believe it hurts when people act like that, when they hurt us when we give all to them…it’s true kindness many a times may be faked…but I truly believe hiding among the dark clouds there is a sun whose sending his gleams to you…in your days somebody might be hiding and protecting you….If there is bad, then surely there will be good…I guess humanity has not purely died…it’s true to be realistic but the heart inside tells me since your alive never let the fantasies die…great day ahead dear poet

Some might think hell ain\'t so beautiful, well, not compared to heaven anyway. I always think getting buried is dying ugly, though the worms may disagree. The world is fine, apart from my neighbour who for some reason doesn\'t like rocknroll at 4 in the morning.

Hello & welcome Meg .. I sincerely hope your post today is the product of a very vivid and creative poets imagination rather than an autobiographical self disclosive bit of well crafted prose ...

A splendid introduction Meg & I hope to see more of you ...... Neville
