My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

August 10, 2010 “ten kisses”

“ten kisses”

Covers are warm
in the morning sun,
kiss me.

Walk close by
when the day is begun,
kiss me.

Stop what you’re doing
and step over here,
kiss me.

Close your eyes
as I nibble your ear,
kiss me.

When evening sets
and the breeze is cool,
kiss me.

When I’m lost in you
and staring like a fool,
kiss me.

If the music is soft
on the dance floor,
kiss me.

As I fumble for keys
to unlock the door,
kiss me.

At the end of the day
when all’s done and said,
kiss me.

As I turn out the light
and take you to bed,
kiss me.

I’ll always kiss you back…

  2. This reminds me a bit of Romeo and Juliet…The sort of man each woman dreams of in the deepest and most secret reaches of her heart. Very romantic Tracy..I am sure your Lady is one very happy woman:):):)

  5. i often wonder to myself is there really such a man out there? your prose makes me realize that such a man does exist, and there is still hope for this world!
    i love the warmth you’ve created, a tender longing that last the whole day through…treating a woman with such passion will surely culminate in a wonderful evening 🙂

  6. Your poetry is lovely and so is this piece. I find you reveal the essence of any situation and again with these two people coming together. The small things that add up to the whole. By the end of the piece I feel … envious, frankly.

    Best regards …

    Very nice poem Tracy but I must say that your words do more to create a pang, than my recipes could ever do.

    You have us romantics hooked and we like it!
