How To Kiss

Kiss me like the light kisses the earth at the point of sunrise

Kiss me like water absorbed into neglected earth during a light rain shower

Kiss me not like mistletoe

Kiss me like I have moments before the gallows

Kiss me like love returned when thought lost for always

Kiss me not like a mother’s mother

Kiss me like someone in love with the sensual art form of lips embracing 

Kiss me like a daydream fantasy realized

Kiss me not like routine absence

Kiss me like demise barely survived

Kiss me like a miracle just revealed

Kiss me not like a familiar friend

Kiss me like I’m nearing a compelling mortal endeavor impossible to accomplish

Kiss me like an artist’s paint brush kisses the canvas while painting the likeness of his love -kiss after kiss

Kiss me not like intimacy disrupted by prying eyes

Kiss me like privacy at long last 

Kiss me…like modesty forgotten

    Favorite line, kiss me like an artists paint brush. I would suggest taking this line and idea and expanding it into another poem. Describe him painting and kissing every part of her, capture the essence of her on your canvas. You are the artist and your canvas holds no limitations.
