Let go of it

How could you let those lips
Be eaten by this wild animal?
How could you let his breath
Into you lungs?
It's just like a curse.
You have to let go of it.
Don't surrender to this beast.
You started to smell just like it.
It seems that it started to haunt you.
It started to run in your blood.
Your face started to look darker than ever.
So… just let go of it.

Theme: Convincing a friend to quit smoking

When I first read the poem, I had some analysis for it. Then I read the theme and knew it was different.

However, here's my analysis. Hope that you will like it.

It's like someone is talking to himself\herself and trying to convince him\herself to let go of something. Let us say that this "something" is a relationship with someone. This relationship seems good, but it's bad in the deep. i,e. its hurt is more than its joy. And there are two forces speaking this person's mind, one is telling him to go on with this relationship no matter what, and the other force is telling him to let go of it cuz it's very harmful and will not go anywhere (has no future).

Tell me if it's true! ;)

That's why I wrote the theme.
When a friend of mine read the poem, she thought it's about kissing a bad guy.
Anyway.. one can explane a poem and reflect what one has in mind.
But you know what?? it's a good try.
Hanoon.. I needed your comment on the prose one "she knew me". it's the one i told you about
