Cigarette Ends

Courtesy- The Mag

I am living the day again,
Till now; the day
You threw me like
A burning cigarette ends.
Burning but yet ensuing end.
I am living the day again.
I am waiting,
Till now; for you
Fervently, no matter how
Egos burnt us and turned us
Into trodden cigarette ends.
But now I promise you again,
A beautiful life; without any smog,
I have wiped the slate clean,
Waiting for you to write within,
A life full of happiness,
A life unlike cigarette ends.
A life unlike cigarette ends.

*Carry On Tuesday (prompt- G.B. Shaw's poem "I Have Wiped the Slate Clean")

  6. The most notable attribute is that how you pulled out an emotional theme from the otherwise mundane cigarette ash. Good work

  7. The promise and hope is presented so powerfully in simple words. Repetition of the ending lines brought out the strength of that promise. It does reminds me of the song, 'Mein zindagi ka saath nibata chala gaya.'

    I think it is simple and beautiful. Of course, a refreshing read too :)

  8. nicely written...
