Shadowy Kisses - Poem by Leslie Alexis
I was kissed by a shadow.
On a summer day, when the
Sun shone in the bright sky, she
Sneaked from a tree, and kissed me.
Kissed me on my cheek, and neck
And every spot on my face,
And lips and eyes, and my nose.
Tenderly, I was kissed, by
A shadow, that left no trace:
For, of all the parts she kissed,
She did not kiss my heart
And shadowy kisses fade,
Like a puff of smoke scatters,
Throughout the universe,
Only to be forgotten;
As I recall, Her wet kisses.
