A Kiss! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi
He looked at his mouth wide open,
Not showing of earth that fallen,
Only the dirty teeth and tongue shown,
In that broken mirror, that was stolen.
He prepared himself to kiss and tell,
The receiver was famous and had no ill,
He scrubbed his teeth with desert sand,
and rinsed the mouth in the water pond.
His heart started to palpitate for the gift,
He was unable to sit and think at nights,
Dreaming of the kiss that he had to press,
The kiss that none dared to embed at any pose.
He was waiting for that night to arrive,
Checked his mouth again to prove,
That one kiss could change his world,
The drowsy eyes spoke the unwritten words.
The time had come for him to get up,
To go near and plant his kiss of gallop,
Though he was too nervous and fearful,
He kissed Jesus of Nazareth without fail.
