Kiss Me - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Kiss me and make it seem better,
Kiss me and quiet my heart,
I never once asked for a letter,
Stating you wanted to part.

Kiss me and declare you were wrong dear,
Kiss me and confirm it's okay,
Say all those things that I so want to hear,
And wipe all my tears away.

Kiss me and let's stay together,
Kiss me and pour out the wine,
Sit with me on my sofa of leather,
And say that everything will be fine.

Kiss me and tell me you love me,
Kiss me with passion to spare,
Don't think of leaving, that is my plea
And also my ardent prayer.

Kiss me, I need you so deeply,
Kiss me, what more can I say,
But with reality looming before me,
This dream has just melted away.

    Sad, Ernestine, but well delivered. Kiss me is the perfect refrain. Nice to find a poet writing so comfortably in rhyme and meter. (Report)Reply

    The girls name was Laura and I did so much for her that she no longer saw me as any kind of a challenge.She left me for my best friend, whom I talk to now as if we were brothers.This is such a heartfelt poem and I really enjoyed getting through the pain with you.Love Duncan (Report)Reply

    Ahhhhh, there are times, when a kiss is
    not merely a kiss. A really fine poem.

    A sad poem, I feel for you, but when you say pour out the wine, you mean into a glass, right? otherwise, I'll be even sadder. (Report)Reply
