>≫≫Love - -An Addiction Unlike Cigarettes - Poem by Abdul Wahab

In both the addiction cases
The end results are being turned into ashes
After being burnt from the time
A cigarette lighted with fire
And love with desire
So smoking is injurious
But love is not
As it burns till death
In pleasure, in delight
Whereas smoking ends up at butt
After being puffed up with smoke and light.
