Kiss Me


Being an optimist
means you fall in love
easily
despite Caution's Whisperings
or is it I fall in Lust Easily
or is there a difference?

It could be I fall into
Need Easily
or is it just admiration
or justification I seek
from the other
to make up for
lost years
hurts and harms.

Maybe
I just want to hold you
kiss you
no more.

But the longing is real
the loneliness is real
or is all this boredom driven
by the drive to variety
the drive to seek adventure
secret desires
desire for change
desire for novelty
desire to feel desired
appreciated
loved
sexy
sexual
sexually fulfilled.

All these:
all these for me
something for me
after years
of Being for Others.

You'll find me
in Clandestine Places
sucking clandestine faces,
at church socials
eyes roving
in bars
drinking
with friends talking
Angst Encapsulated
pounding at my
Soul's Door
seeking entry
my thighs tingling
my heart pounding
seeking to recapture
Youth's Excitements
Maturities Satisfactions
alive again
being reborn
no longer
dying.

Kiss Me.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
