A kiss under the mistletoe

I stand in front of the mirror
Trying to look a dish
Puckering up the lips
Practicing for a kiss

I half close my eyes
For the Greta Garbo look
I don’t look a bit like
the siren in a book

Looks more like I have myopia
Squinting like a fool
How can I look seductive
What's the golden rule

Lips all red and shiny
Rehearsals come to an end
Had plenty of practice
Courtesy of a friend

I stand here by the mistletoe
With what I hope is a seductive face
A wet juicy kiss smeared my mouth
Yuck what an utter waste.

    Yes, there's nothing worse than a kiss that feels like you've been run over by a wet hovercraft. Congrats on getting this poem featured this week, Seren. Viv x
