The Right Set Of Lips - Poem by Esther Leclerc

Three small words... eight tiny letters...
mean much more than any other
when formed together by the right set of lips
in the voice you adore (tender... urgent) .

That significant look is the key,
holding fast your eyes, your insides...
some words take you captive
and you don't want to be free

    At times like this, I am glad that
    I have 10 fingers handy ...
    for those three big words!

    Esther, Here here! Again, you don't waste your words but use their ordering to convey oceans of content. Beautiful. lotsaluv, Allie XXX (Report) Reply

    I understand completely... it was the right set of lips that sparked the fire in my pen after years of silence.
