Repeatedly, a kiss then becomes rain

Spread the love

Here I am in the midst of it all,
not even a blue-black cloud and yet your mist is written
all over me–
the lit fuse of your lips soft and sensual
beckons, come take me down
and I realize
you are the only possible remedy for my parched landscape.
I am powerless,
for the moment I open my mouth,
the moment I attempt to speak, I am hushedโ€”

the earnestness of your chiseled features is enough to bowl me over.

A floating sensation; unexplained
I find I am unable to think clearly until daylight
shapes your face,
perhaps this is the new normal
the lipstick upon my coffee cup belittles me for delaying too muchโ€”
how long must a confession be?
I ask the heat of the sun most precariously.
โ€œAs long as it takes for the fume of his sighs to meld with yours
completely.โ€

  1. Youโ€™ve infused so much passion into this poem, Sanaa, it almost melts! I particularly love the lines:
    โ€˜not even a blue-black cloud and yet your mist is written
    all over meโ€™;
    โ€˜you are the only possible remedy for my parched landscapeโ€™;
    and
    โ€˜the lipstick upon my coffee cup belittles me for delaying too muchโ€™.
