Tattoos & Cigarettes
I remember when you were all
Tattoos & cigarettes
Cherries and swallows inked on your skin
You knew how tattoos got me going
Especially on you.
How you used to light a Marlboro
With a devilish grin
And blow your smoke right at me
Maybe a few smoky kisses,
Sexy in your scally cap
While you’d snap inhale
Huge white balls of smoke
Popping out of your mouth,
Right back in,
God how I loved that,
And you knew how your smoking got me going-
Your smoking was always the sexiest.
In our little barn
You’d show off your new tattoos
Smiling like the sun.
So what happened to
The tattoos & cigarettes
We used to share?
