20. Why a Kiss 7/12/2012

Why a Kiss

Why a kiss
Why did we choose the simple touching of flesh
Why is it we chose to risk some sickly infection to show our affection
Why is it we chose to pucker our lips like a child as it feeds on the breast
Perhaps like a child we hunger for love
And this is how we chose to feed from it
If this is the case, I have starved for a long while
For while I can feel the warm glow of love upon me
I have never drunk from the cup of intimacy

[Hata Bildir]
