A Kiss

Poetry by | February 14, 2010

A kiss
Is sacred, so divine
A symbol of love
Pure and sublime.

Yet a kiss
Can be of friendship,
Peers do that
To say hello and goodbye.

And a kiss
Filled with lust
Is fierce, savagely
desired, filled with delight.

Though the kiss
I yearn for
Is a little bit
Of everything—

A kiss full of love
A kiss full of amity
And yes, a kiss full of
Unstoppable desire.

Ah a kiss—just this kiss.
