Kismet

Kismet

A Poem by Chris Shaw
"

(a little light romance)

"
when our lips met in breathless tender touch
as eyelids drew their blinds on bustling world
let memories of that moment's state of bliss
reside inside our minds for all of time
as butterflies chased moonbeams in night's dark
two hearts entwined like grapes grown on a vine
while stars saluted pathways edged in bright
those feet were floating six feet off the ground
the axis of the planet came adrift
all sense of time departed when we kissed

A title derived of destiny, of providence, and of ... a Kiss-Met?
Fun, Engaging, Compelling, makes me want to light up an afterwards-cigarette,
and I don't smoke! haha

"Every poem is a love poem" since all poems are the product of attention care and concern. It is not the default but rather the 'scherzo" or lively character of (modern) poetic composition. It makes otherwise routine word combinations , aqueous and yes, beautiful. And although Love poems assume that everyone's beauty is the same , which it isn't. Everyone falsifies the un-beautiful similarly. But i'm older now, with one leg shorter than the other and my bedroom window faces the neighbors wooden privacy fence. So I use poetry like this as the green pastures of velar tongue touching; to moisten an otherwise treeless world. wonderfully written/ dana

First kisses, so very long ago. Never quite recapture the feet off the ground feeling after that. Thank you for another visit. Enjoy the rest of the day.

Such feelings of love on thinking of a loved one but how desire and lust for each other speeds up this process until this horniness subsides to a more sustainable plateau of love. Nice one Chris.

For we long to relish in this kind of moment and forget the world but two in the moment never wanting it to end. A rush comes taking over as one may have never felt before, souls touching with the sparks of the kiss. I have been here and still am with each tender to immense kiss from my hubby. Enjoyed reading this beautiful, flowy piece.
