The Kiss - reverse poem

When you kissed me
A fool fell in love
I became weak in the knees
The world revolved around your halo
Angel eyes captured my imagination
Like Einstein I discovered relativity 
Wisdom had been my lonely pathway
Drunk on independent thought
Wondering if those lips would part for me
Wanting to breathe your breath
Gazing longingly 
I looked towards you
So quickly
You looked away 
my heart sank
When you kissed another boy

Don't forget to read it in reverse.

Reverse poem written for Craig Cornish's contest.
August 11/2013

    Very interesting poem just enjoyed. It's a matter of heart feeling. When she does, I can't tolerate but when I do, can she bear? Excellent reverse poem. Good luck in the contest. Loved always, bl
