My Lips are Sealed

My lips are sealed
I will not say
I long for you
Till night meets day

My lips are sealed
No, not a breath
Till I lie still
In arms of death

My lips are sealed
I will not speak
Of how you move
And make me weak

My lips are sealed
There is no sound
Of how myself
To you I’ve bound

My lips are sealed
I’ll not confess
How for your eyes
I would undress

My lips are sealed
I will not praise
I’ll lock inside
This love sick craze

My lips are sealed
You will not hear
How melting starts
When you are near

My lips are sealed
For you don't dare
To view this soul
That I lay bare

With tongue so wet
My lips unseal
Slide over them
Their sweetness real

Tis with your lips
You unlock mine
And get a taste
Of what’s divine

A lover’s kiss
Holds firm the key
Unlock my lips
And savor me!

Until that time
Sweet dream of mine
Until that time….
My lips are sealed.

    Perfect quatrain with a song lyric flow or how they would extend into perfect couplets or how the repetition feels like one of the repeating forms or a mix of them, but certainly majestic rhyme form and how you dared deviate in quatrains 9-11 after the foreplay of 1-8 is certainly climax (pun intended), but then it's only a dream----you did, however, leave hope with "until that time" and my lips----I'll never tell---way to much sensual fun!!

    "Foreplay and climax....Pun intended" Craig, you are clever with words. ;) Very clever....Glad you know when to speak and when to seal what one must not reveal......Thanks for the advice. i do appreciate it. :)

    And this is a perfect example of how silence can be so utterly powerful. That and a good pair of lips. lol Great job, Eileen!

    HAHAHAHAHA! Oh Drake...I've always wanted bigger lips. Seriously...considering my dad and mom...I'm grateful for what I have. Dad has a line for lips...I tell you no lie! Hubby's lips? MASSIVE! :) Angelina Jolie....I hate you! ;) Then again...depends on what you do with what you've got! ;) Thanks for stopping by! :)

    I had to reread this one, I thought your lover was Death. I'm glad I went back and got the real message, much more satisfying. Very sensual piece.

    No, Rick...that stanza was just saying how I'd take my secret to the grave if my lips were not magically unsealed with a kiss....Glad you got the message of the poem.

    Now this is just not fair...Why you wanna get me all in a lather this early in the morn?... I absolutely forbid this kind of erotica in the future, young lady!...You are BLOOMING as a poet here my friend...This reads a little like Emily Dickenson...Very short, simple and elegant verses - Tim

    WOW!!!!! WOW WOW WOW WOW! I can't help it, Tim...the inspiration just came to me and I had to obey. :) Erotica? A little too strong a word, don't you think? ;) Let's settle for sensual...I'm comfy with that. Emily DIckenson...I'm Nobody...Yea, short and to the point alright. HUGS!
