Tip of Your Nose

I knew that for me it was you that day I first spied your brown eyes, and my gray adamantine skies got all sparkly and soft and blue. I proposed the tip of your nose, with its little mounds and its dips, (it's the key to unlock your lips.) for where my very first kiss goes. I caught you alone as you paused one moment too long. It landed with you off guard, as I planned it; but, wow! the wild heart beats that caused. My eyes weren’t closed and rolled they did when yours went big as plates. My head whipped back; that relates to how hard was your nose and cold. I knew right away my ‘amore’ wouldn't rate romance in your dreams. “I’m sorry," I said, "It seems…” But then you whispered, “Kiss me more.”

I liked your moon poem, and I'm sorry about your magic moonlight moment. I'm sure, play your cards right and you will. There's too much romance in your poems.

HOw cute, and much more "real" than my goofy moon poem!! I never saw the word adamantine before. will have to look it up. Sounds like a cool word.

There are parts that are just so 'you' that we have to.

Hey John, it is funny how men think....you know where my hubbie wanted to kiss me....my eye lids. It seemed strange to me. I did not mind though.;} {^~^}
