A Kiss - Poem by Isaac Helms

Pulse begins to race
Always remember your face
Hair as red as fire
Beauty that I could admire
Eyes of green jade
Alone together as the would fade

Touch of your lips against mine
Told me everything would be fine
Kiss your below your ear
Bare your nails into my back
Stare at you eye to eye
Under covers thigh to thigh

Wake up and leave you in bed
Lay there still asleep
Do not wake you
See the beauty in you
No idea that I am about to leave
Give you a kiss and say good bye

    I like this poem's use of ambiguity. It's unclear how meaningful the kiss is, or why it's being immortalized in a poem. I like your work. (Report) Reply
