One Kiss, spoken in five kisses

 

Kiss me:


He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning-fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete.—-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Kiss me:

“When [he] kisses you he isn’t doing anything else. You’re his whole universe..and the moment is eternal because he doesn’t have any plans and isn’t going anywhere. Just kissing you…it’s overwhelming.Jon Troast


I can not breathe for the nearness of you:

“She was darkness and he was darkness and there had never been anything before this time, only darkness and his lips upon her. She tried to speak and his mouth was over hers again. Suddenly she had a wild thrill such as she had never known; joy, fear, madness, excitement, surrender to arms that were too strong, lips too bruising, fate that moved too fast.” ― Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

                                                      

I simply can not pull myself away: 


                                                                             you have the Roman Empire on your mouth

                                                                         but all I catch is the plum laced vessel

                                                                          of your bottom lip
                                                               speaking:
                                                                     bitten, I’ll gladly be
                                                                   darling, come and conquer me.

And when we are apart, you are with me

 for your kiss stays on my mouth

 
 the binding string
of the disconsolate day
wrapping around you
wrapping around me
tied between my fingerspaces
until your steady voice
 unravels in my evening 
“fuck them all, my love
kiss me now
and let go”
and i let go

  1. To feel your mouth on my mouth, and in that same motion, to hold you in my arms with a closeness that all too often I find difficult to explain with words. My heart beats with added strength from the feeling I get when I hold you. Your body is small in my arms. The moment our kiss is over and we look into each other’s eyes, I want you again. And the cycle repeats.
