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.

The last line should use "feels" instead of "felt".

It's very well written otherwise. It captures the exhilaration of being intimate with an attractive stranger quite well I do think.

Oh yeah, just one little thing for the sake of accuracy, the Dickinson poem you were inspired by is actually titled "Wild Nights! Wild Nights!".

Gracefully sensual.

Great Read

Interesting take on being single and having no responsibilities, thus being free to roam. Flowing and thought provoking and descriptive piece.

Wonderfully done and loved the imagery. I have a few memories of such things. :)

Very nicely done! I did a lot of club surfing in my day, but sadly I was always the wing man. It does indeed sound like an interesting evening. Keep up the good work!

I really liked this poem . the way you talk about being single from the side you don't usually hear

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. :)

Sooo, hello guys! Not much to say about me. I've been a writer since I was in kindergarten. I used to write stories about dinosaurs surviving the meteor (my favorites ones usually lived) because I had.. more..
