Posts Tagged ‘Lips’

Buttoned…

Lips
Keep secrets
Swearing
Never to repeat
What was shared
To lighten the burdens
Life lodges
Deeply within our souls

Pockets
Hold treasures
Pushing
Against seams
As if plotting
To escape
The curiosity
That lives in small fingers

Coats
Store warmth
Shutting out
Cold
Stirred by stinging winds
As
Days grow short
And
The sun seeks rest
Under dusk’s early arrival

Blouses
Throw shadows
Hinting
At the softness
Of
Feminine curves
That lay
Beneath the filmy shield
Of
Silken fabric

Holes
Close openings
Protecting
Precious places
Ensuring privacy
As long as
They remain
Securely buttoned

Men
Kiss lips
Without
Considering
The souls
They touch
The lives
They disrupt
Or
The hearts
That skip a beat

When
Men
Kiss lips
They pluck
The ripe fruit
Of
Women
Who
Upon arriving
At surrender’s gate
Have
The sweetness of their virtue
Sampled
And
The softness of their sensuality
Probed
By lustful hunger
And
A temporary longing
To be satisfied

When
Men
Kiss lips
They ignore
A woman’s open soul
As
It waits
For
The deeper exploration
Necessary
To uncover
Unfulfilled promises
That linger
On the edge
Of
Her destruction
Still hopeful
That the smoldering embers
That once burned bright
With optimism
Might be ignited
By the desire
In his lips

When
Men
Kiss lips
They apply pressure
To flesh
Leaving
Imprints of themselves
On the slopes of mouths
Never to be eroded
From
A woman’s memory
Even as she is propelled
From him
Through time
To
Another man’s kiss
