I love you like a cigarette


I love you like a cigarette,

I put you out at night,

when I wake up in the morning,

I set your world alight.

I sometimes forget you

through my working days.

But when I see a cigarette,

I remember to speak your praise.

You know how much I love you,

I want it to remain a secret.

Cigarettes are a health risk

I think I’ll manage to keep it.

When I reach the end,

And the filter’s left behind,

You’ll always be with me,

The cigarette of my mind.

About George Hutton Hunter Contemporary Artist

Contemporary artist (paintings, drawings,sculpture, music, writer) living in Newcastle upon Tyne. I’m a self taught artist born in Ryton, but now live and works in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I’ve taken part in joint exhibitions in Paris, New York, London, Hong Kong and Newcastle. My view of any kind of art is that it should leave an impression, whether it is good or bad is up to the individual. I think my style of painting and drawing is about colours and shapes and how they interact. I mainly paint acrylics or with spray paint, occasionally oils, inks, watercolours, mixed media plus glass paint on sheet glass. I also draw using oil and chalk pastels plus watercolour pencils. I use a variety of objects to paint such as blocks of wood, strips of paper, my fingers and of course, brushes. I also produce small sculptural artworks, write prose and short stories, plus create electronic music on Sound Cloud under the name 'diTempli'. I am also an amateur musician playing mainly the Charango, Ukulele and Guitar. My artwork can be found on a number of websites around the world but can also be purchased also from myself at www.ghunterartist.co.uk.

  1. I don’t think it really matters when you write something. Some of my stuff I wrote over 40 years ago when I was a child.
    Whenever it was written, it is still your thoughts 🙂 and I thought it was great 🙂
