The Cigar - Poem by Double A P SS

When you touch me I feel ill
I feel the earth underneath my feet disappear
When you touch me I feel the target in my back
When you touch me I feel it
Their never ending stare
When you touch me
I can see the world for what it really is
When you touch me
I feel ill
You have become my addiction
When you touch me I feel it
When we touch nothing matters but you
When you touch me I feel

    The maxim that 'smoking is injurious to your health' has been applied emotionally in the poem. Let us look at these meaningful lines: When you touch me / I can see the world for what it really is / When you touch me / I feel ill / You have become my addiction. (Report) Reply

    the last sentence could be completed this way.....when you touch me I feel / my lung getting exhausted to extract pure air I need to live long nights on earth.... Good touch. (Report) Reply

    when you touch me, I feel ill............very informative verse! when people aren't aware of their health issues until the day arrives with diseased notes. I had written so many poems on addiction and those poem did not get any comment and appreciated except a few of the poets such as Rajendran Muthiah, Raj Arumugam, Chandra T and others agreed with the idea of those poems! well written! Thank you for sharing! Let us fight against these evils! As I have only one account in PH, I am able to vote for you once only! sorry! ! ! (Report) Reply
