watching through half closed eyes 
wondering where those smoke rings you blow 
really go 
waiting for the next exhale 
wishing you would look my way 
solve the mystery. 

I'm ready to discover the darkness 
you keep buried deep inside 
willing you to come clean 
share your 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.
