A Kiss - Poem by David Barlow

What is in a kiss,
Body and soul, heart and mind,
When lovers lips meet.
Without that kiss emptiness,
Is all we can feel inside.

    A kiss is but a kiss...
    When heated and on target to the heart it is not amiss.

    Hard felt happiness of one kiss...
    Tossed at thee is no longer one remiss.

    Love can hang on tight...
    Once ye've been bit light.

    No more turn of the head away from ye you admire...
    Your heart will for sure hire.

    Ne'er to hurt and fire...
    Best be your desire.

    Great poem David. God bless lovers and poets-MJG.

    The woman you kiss will kiss you back. Both hard and soft. Both clean and dirty. However and wherever she kisses you, it will come from her heart aswell as her mouth.
    A wonderful piece of writing again David.
