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 Written in Germany -3 DEC 2012

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.
