Wine painted lips

Wine painted lips. Lips the sun had kissed. Left a black mark. Later became a scar. It didn’t spoil her beauty, I did what I did this was my duty. She was my dream, She became my wife, my moonbeam. We broke many hearts, Not to be apart. I showed her the way Just for her to stay. We drove million miles. Together we smiled. She is there and I am here. This I didn’t plan. We ended up in tears.

...And sorry I missed the sex part ;) Love, but not sex! Although sex is a wonderful thing. I am trying to describe a beautiful perfect looking woman, you see being an artist myself I use paints, but I wanted to paint her lips not with paints but with wine... you know what I mean.

Dear Linda, I'm so glad you found the time to comment. This is a personal experience between me and my wife. She comes from England I came from Lebanon, and all odds were against us being from different cultures. Religion and background. We broke many hearts just to be together and we ended up in tears sorry to say. Until now her family are bitter towards my wife....
