Kissed - Poem by Doris Cornago

Kissed your lips this morning
Seeing you in deep sleep
Just can't help myself
Wondering, how will it feel?

Don't worry because it's magical
T'was just a feather kiss
A kiss given in gratitude,
clean and pure like water

Don't worry because it's mystical
an angel's kiss does not touch
skin but touches mind
a psychic kiss that elevates...

You said virginity
is of the mind
and not the body
Seeing someone
with wrong intention
is part of sin
so does thinking
Keeping mind clean
is more important
than the physical

I understand your concern...

Yes, you are so right
Guard our minds as they
dictate our actions
Even in doing right,
there may be wrong reason
What a man thinks, so is he
but what a man does may come
from his generous heart -
I did not take anything
but gave you something...

What's wrong with you?
Should generosity not count
Should lack of motive be given
due license to commit?
Forgive if I badger
but not asking to excuse
the act because it is beyond
control of projection,
beyond universal laws
A need out of being human...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

What are the boundaries of spiritual loving? Of spiritual relationships? There should be an embankment to control surges of waves, or the relationship will hit rocks strewn about the open sea. Agreement and honoring agreements are necessary, but what if no agreements have been laid out? So, the waves overflow without restrictions, beyond recall. In the same way, a poet must maintain control and not injure with the license she is given to heal or cut with words.
