Smokes (Commitment phobia)

11/08/11

Shall I compare thee

to a puff of smoke

 

That now is here

and now is gone?

 

Shall I compare thee

to an illusion

 

That now I see

and now I don’t?

 

Shall I compare thee

to a mirage

 

A distant dream

I just can’t reach?

 

Shall I then give

my heart of hearts

 

my whole life to

a puff of smoke?
