John Kipling Lewis Poems
lightly softly touch inspire open silent
A bottle of you.
I need a bottle of you, hidden in the cupboard. When I'm lonely I can uncork you, close my eyes and inhale your fragrance.
Breakfast at Tiffany's
I feel most safe in the back of police cars. That space is safe.
If you're going to kill me tonight
If you're going to kill me tonight, do it slowly. I promise you won't need to bind me.
An Affair to Remember
We share the same cabin while the rest of the passengers sleep. Jack and Coke for two, we spill out our lives... our love.
The Littlest Elf
Alone in the lush green forest sits the littlest elf, smiling broadly as the golden sun rises on the fluffy white rabbits
There in the background is a soundtrack hum. Cars past but the beat and the whispered lyrics remain. No violins. Just the song that's followed you your entire life.
all that hope can do
What expectation can I hold that I will desire without fear of unfullfilment. If life holds no desire
Your lips are like feathers parted by words. I feel their brush on my neck. My toes grip.
I wish I made you smile
looking past the trees into the summer skies not a hint of a cloud in your brilliant blue eyes.
Your tie is crooked. You're broken. Your slip is showing.
I want to SCREAM silently I FIGHT fruitlessly, failing to move EVERY VOICE IN MY HEAD COMMANDS ME TO
Pink is the new Black. Salmon shirt for your office, goes well this season with that tie.
birchous slender felted cove.
birchous slender felted cove. knock tick-tock a cocking load. ferrous crafted hafted shout. fibrous clotted sauna spout.
