Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly Kisses

A Poem by Lisasview
"

I wrote this poem using Richards Five 'n Eights original form. Perhaps some of you do not know what Butterfly Kisses are. My mother taught me. We put our eyes together and fluttered our lashes.

"

Butterfly Kisses....


Butterfly kisses,

lovers’ lip blisses,

whispered promises to neglect.

Moments disappear,

hopefulness looms near …

  is there enough time to reflect?


A brief rendezvous;

then, one says, "Adieu "

hurtful feelings left on love's bed.

Sheer curtains spread open,

unkind words spoken …

  thoughts that never should have been said.


Tear~ending morning,

came without warning!

Alone again, standing undressed.

Too late to find out

love's kiss was in doubt …

our time is now no longer blessed.

Yes, I know what butterfly kisses are. Probably some of the younger ones do not know, but they were popular, and fun, in days gone by. A perfect metaphor for a short love affair - setting the heart a-flutter today, gone like a fly-away butterfly tomorrow. A fine poem, Lisa!

Lisa, traveling
Yes! My wife used them on me in our courting days. When I tried them she said they were more like vultures fighting over dead meat. Memories!

Absolutely hysterical...
I appreciate your personality dear Lisa. Though you've aged, you are full of love about things surrounding you and it shows your heart is very young.
The rhyming and the artwork are two brilliant points about this post. I enjoyed it. May nothing but love and happiness fulfill the hearts of everybody on earth.

A beautiful poem with a delicate touch, just like a butterfly. It seemed to flutter, touch down only to flit away again. Soft but at the same time melancholy. Nice metaphors as well. Loved it

All undressed and no one to love! Sucks!! I like all your innuendo in the second verse. Is this a formal poetic form? Those brief relationships flitter through our lives, and sometimes wonder if they ever think about us ... or write.
