Your Discarded Cigarette

(Vom Vorton)

we met when we were nico-teenagers
you were going through a rebellious patch
you were looking for someone to act cool with
I leaned in with a match
though your friends called me disgusting
and I was banned from all the bars in town
you found me irresistible
I helped to calm you down

now my influence still lingers
do you wish we’d never met?
I’m a stain upon your fingers
I'm your discarded cigarette

you grew up, but I didn’t
I made it hard for you to breathe
and though it made you sick at first
you finally got me to leave

though years have passed
you left the country
and bought a house with your savings
every now and then
you think of me
and can’t resist the cravings

Your Discarded Cigarette - Tim Hinkle

Extinguished well before my time
Snuffed though my flame was fresh lit
For the rarefied air of the interior
You discarded your cigarette

I’ve tried to forget the touch of your lips
but the memory still filters through
Such a drag that you won’t take another drag
I still smolder down here for you

Quite alone and forlorn
though not used up or worn
to unreached consummation
I was ejected!
Fingers no longer held
Swiftly I was propelled
to premature ruination

Your Discarded Cigarette - Nick Soma & Cookie Blue

Your discarded cigarette
Still smoking on the floor
Your disappearing silhouette
As you walk out the door
I watched you collect your things
What has been thrown away?
So much to regret, I know
That I can't make you stay

The sky has not been so blue
The sun has not shone so bright
I don't know what you've been through
I just hope you’re alright

The ashes of my burning heart
Are falling to the ground
It's so hard to realize
That you won't be around
The ash of your cigarette
Is all you've left behind
And though you'll forget me now
You will be on my mind
come to the dark side.
