Poem – “Due for the Delicate Kiss” – Romance – 2/22/2020

By

Due, and overdue
For the delicate kiss, upon a mouth
That gapes with the sighs,
Blown free, like seeds off a dandelion
In the month of May.

I hold your neck,
And I kiss your flesh,
Velvet and soft, as it shimmers in the sunrise.
I breathe over you
The devotion I’ve been meaning
To release.

I bleed
Love upon you,
Over you,
And above you,
With kisses brought deep into your heart.

Beloved!
We are entranced
By each other’s stares,
Beneath the sunrise,
Beneath love’s reign,
As I rain the sweet petals from my weeping eyes.

I cannot allow
You, to fall,
Away from me,
Far from me.
