Poetry's Kiss - Poem by Bill Cantrell

Poetry’s kiss is bittersweet,
Not for the unsteady soul
To wake up in an abandoned bed
Is such a heavy toll

Her lips are molten cherry red
With eyes of the ocean blue
I left her once for music,
But no other love would do

Sometimes at the midnight hour,
I hear a knocking at my door
Then everything is right until
I awake alone once more

She owns you for eternity
She will never let you go
Kiss her lips and feel her brand
Upon your very soul

    I left her once for music,
    But no other love would do

    She owns you for eternity
    She will never let you go

    You speak with the lyrical truth of one who has intimately known the capriciousness of poetry's muse. Beautiful, but a dangerous dancing partner. :) Delightful read, my friend.
