A Blind Man's Kiss - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

I held you in the perfection
Of what my palms gathered
Fiber by fiber, grain by grain
The essence of your beauty
And the yearning of your lips

As I gentled pealed off
The moisture on my lips
As I brushed against your vineyards of vermillion
To taste the vines of your divine taste
As I let go off all inhibitions
And found heaven in your paradisaical lips

Oh how beautiful is kissing in the dark
With our eyes open and our lips locked
As in love I am healed of my birth rite
As your lips carry me, held to your ledge
Guiding me on my voyage to bliss
In a conglomeration of divine touch
And ambrosial taste

Who am I to complain of blindness
When I feel your lips protracted in grip
Washing me in taste and crumbling me in desire

I may possess albino globes and opaque lenses
Yet I am blinded by your sentience - the hold of you lips

Who am I to surrender sentiments of discontent
When sentience spikes me, in climactic tremors
For what was dispossessed off me
I have possessed in your lips
What no two mortal eyes can ever gather
Polluted by sight

Blindness is my aphrodisiac
And your lips are my elixir

And desire is my disease.........
