Thy Lips

Thy Lips

A Poem by Michael G. Smith

Edits, inspirations and collaboration by/with YumnaKay 


Thy lips,

     Wet roses; milk pink.

Pillows, silks and sighs...

     sounds of a river’s dance,

soft as quiver’s cry.


Thy lips,

     Red velvet frosting cinnamon drip'd;

over strawberry fields forever and ever wine,

     rise nude blood moons cryptic

each scarlet pills blaze this tongue of mind.


Thy lips,

     Apollo's chariots across my sky

Shooting stars in fervor nova blaze 

     blown kisses as cupid's arrows fly,

pierce melting doubts into outerspace


Thy lips,

     Greater molds God canst cast;

Tiffany’s chandelier hanging priceless

    like ruby sands trap'd in an hourglass

Visions and limbos of vertigo's oasis


Thy lips,

     blush wishes mist from Aladdin's lamp;

serendipitous to a lover shy.

     thy touch from heart to soul benevolent ;

as first laid dew in morning's light


Thy lips,

     burgundy bottle cork'd sum'r days;

messages braille in fuzzy sips.

     Tasting tickles of fuchsia ferment grapes.

As the crimson licorice twizzle licks


Thy lips, 

     sweet honeysuckle intoxicates,

as does wisp of plum upon my skin.

    Hot breaths saturates as whispers bate;

lava erupting from hearts deep within.


Thy lips,

     Red ribbons at the ends 'rouse wrap ornate;

unwrap'd, petals gift free in austral poem writ

     Oracles, tea leaves chase to kismet an' fate,

Branding iron's final touch imprints upon this fragile spirit.
