That Kiss | April Poetry Month


We each can remember moments in past relationships that grew us up somehow. After the longing and hurt fade, we are left appreciating how we changed and were moved by love. This poem reminds me of this, and how even after your last goodbye, you're still in each other's hearts somewhere.


That Kiss

Sitting side by side

I saw the smoke in your eyes

As you leaned in to kiss me

With a practiced tongue

That teased my mouth

And left me hungry for more.

I can still feel your lips from that kiss

Lingering like a creamy truffle

In my pliant mouth

While you whispered secrets to me

Of pleasures yet to come.

Let's be friends
