Question: Which stanza should I use!?
Which one, in your opinion, is better!? A beginner poet, by the way!. Trying to practice!. I personally favor the first!. What do you guys think!?

1!. The cemetery,
a different dimension,
where the air is contaminated
with nostalgia,
and distant cries of grief!.
A surreal atmosphere,
like peering through a cloud!.

2!. The cemetery,
a dream-like dimension,
like peering through a cloud
and on laughing gas
at the same time,
except you're not laughing!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Both are good efforts to be sure!. The second is less reliant on cliche' images!.

In the second option, you might wish to consider replacing "and on laughing gas" with,,, ( while ) on laughing gas!. The word "and" in this case offers nothing to the verse!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
