Single Nights

Single Nights

A Poem by Livana Lowell
"

a poem about being single

"
Last night
I kissed a guy
and tasted vodka 
with a tinge of bar smoke
mesmerized by the way his eyes spoke.
I followed his sultry voice
outside where his hands found my hips
and I licked the freedom off his lips
the freedom in knowing I can forget his name,
in knowing he will forget mine
in knowing I could get lost in a good time
But we only kissed
and when he left, I smiled.
It felt good to be wild once in awhile.

That could have ended in a night of passionate yet casual sex but I like how she refrains from doing so, instead finding a simple pleasure in kissing a man she doesn't know. An enjoyable read.

"and I licked the freedom off his lips" This line was very good but for some reason it also amused me by bringing a slight smile to my lips. It's somewhat funny but in a great way.

Overall it is quite good. Keep up the good work, Livana. :)

This is an amazing poem, I'm glad that you're writing about something which can be quite a taboo subject, especially for women. Some of the lines in this are so beautiful, "I licked the freedom off his lips" is a personal favourite. Beautiful.

Hm, yes it was quite interesting indeed. At least nothing bad came of it, in fact quite the opposite I'd say, you got a wonderful poem out of it in exchange. :)

As everybody before me has said, this is a good poem, one of the best I have read from you. In the interest of offering input I'm going to be a grammar natzi for a moment and say that the biggest improvement you could make would be capitalizing all lines, or non of them. Or add commas in what I think was intended to be a list. Again, it's a good poem, and stands just fine the way it is!

Captivating read!
"I kissed a guy
and tasted vodka
with a tinge of bar smoke" Powerful feeling!

Well done. You have a great skill painting images with well chosen words. There are some great lines in this - I particularly like 'mesmerized by the way his eyes spoke. I followed his sultry voice' and 'licked the freedom off his lips'
It didn't feel like it would only end in a kiss but then if it had to progress further it wouldn't be freedom!
This is really great work - subtle and simple.
regards,
Alan
