Ashes and Smoke…

Reading Time: 1 minute

I used to think I was a romantic 
now I know I’m little more than 
a man with a small heart and 
big hopes lost in a pool 
littered with many party 

I see poetry in everything
it’s there……
never palpable and never wanting to be converted to a 
real form 
I’m romantic like I’m a silhouette
made apparent but untouchable
honest and true as smoke from my shortening cigar

THE WALLS WE PUT UP IN THE NIGHT (poetry) by: Roman Newell

A collection of poetry written day by day, next to trash cans, in driveways, with whiskey, smoking cigars, while making love and giving and stealing— the way we live.
