Like watching paint dry on a dirt wall

A plane at a 90 degree angle


Ring around the roses, pocket of cold steel


A raisin for a lung

A dying breath rising to the Sun

A little wisp of smoke on a rainy day

Just fade-


Slipping into the deep

Give a squeeze

And just rock off to sleep

Sunlight spreading its warming fingers

Like a tuft of smoke


Dissipate into nothing

A breath of fresh air

Sniff, catch a whiff

Of a new beginning at its start

Emerging valiantly from the dark

A little poem about life, I feel that it is pretty straightforward but if you want me to explain things or want to speculate on things, feel free to do so.

Sometimes it gets too tedious to wait any longer...

I know how you feel, but life in of itself has its own worth.

Hmm, I have to say that this was fairly interesting although I'm not a big fan of rhyming. Your imagery was certainly what caught me by the beginning, as there's multiple takes on everything-"Slipping into the deep\Give a squeeze\And just rock off to sleep" Someone taking their last breath, squeezing their lover's hand for the last time? Then, the poem slowly begins to grow from a dark, sudden ending to a hopeful beginning- the smoke dissipates in a new breeze.
Overall, very suiting of its title and a lovely little poem!

Thanks for the feedback! I was actually kind of apprehensive about uploading it because I felt that it wasn't...well very good but a friend convinced me otherwise.
