Kissing (for Alba Leigh)
What is a kiss, an emotional act?
Essential to foreplay, without doubt;
Spontaneous, not a science exact,
For sure; something we cannot do without.
Give me one who kisses, eyes open wide,
As closed eyes might lend to thoughts that wander.
Eyes are a window to what lies inside,
A moment we might otherwise squander.
Taking keen note of the tell tale signs that
Separate kiss of life from kiss of death;
Some lift you, others take you to the mat,
Those that deprive life or just take your breath.
The question, "What does a kiss mean to me?"
What it means to you, what I hope to see.
