I watch through half closed eyes
wondering where those smoke
rings you blow really go
wait for the next exhale
wishing you would look my way
solve the mystery
you keep buried deep inside
share the dark secrets
wrapped in smoke rings
that disappear into thin air


  1. Smoke rings always seem so Noir!
    So you say that there are no Anti-Christs in Oregon?
    Don't ask that question in Alabama....:-)
    Loved your Wondering 55 Helen
    Thanks for playing...You are a PEACH!
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End

  2. Where do those smoke rings go? Good question, great write Helen!

  3. Made me think of a lot of classic old movies, Helen--and smoke does get in your eyes--that's at least one of the places it goes. I like the feeling of mystery in this.

  4. I've always wondered about those smoke rings too, Helen, as they seemingly disappear into thin air. I think it must take true talent to be able to blow them...

  5. hey they go on....and sharing, whether its secrets or what...we do it while we have the time...

  6. in your clothes, hair … :) Great 55 and .. yes, it reminds me too of a scene from an old movie

  7. I've always loved a mysterious smoke ring. Could almost make one want to smoke! And I love those old smoky movies.
