Remembering Him Poem by Cia Frizzell

Remembering Him

Rating: 3.7


'you kiss me like you really mean it',
he told me once,
not as a compliment, more of an accusation.

and he was right... i did
i knew i had to fit a lifetime in that kiss.

Cia, this cut me to the bone, and you know why! I was too young and arrogant, with too many options, to think this way. Wish I'd had this kind of insight into myself and situation. You've put so much into these few lines. Deadly exit. One of the best I've ever read! ! x jim

I had a kiss like that once. And it changed my life forever. A simply expressed piece that offers a plethora of possibilities in just a few words. Love it. Allie xxxxxxxxxxxx

Every word exactly in the right place, nothing redundant, superb crafting - & a teasing ambiguity to end with: has to be a 10!

Again, this poem can be taken two ways. You had to fit a lifetime into that kiss to show him how you felt about him...or, you fit that lifetime into a kiss to tell him it was over. Conundrum. Which ever it is...masterfully done with few words.xxElysabeth

Isn't really a kiss starts meant for your whole life? Has kneeled down request for a marriage? Ha, ha!
