On The Tip Of Your Tongue - Poem by Anthony Dalby

The tip
of your tongue
is hidden sweetness
in dark places
lying in soft crevices between silken sheets
veins of visceral potential
words lying unspoken
half forgotten poems
yearnings and longings
awesome fantasies
The swollen bud pushes out of its secret place
arching your lips to the light
to touch
the tip
of my tongue

    I always though that kissing was an art form... You've certainly proven my point! Wonderful poem.
