Kiss’s Endless Question (poem)

I will not linger on your kiss

All thoughts of it I will dismiss

I’ll set my mind on other things

In hopes to free my soul of this

-

I’ll give it wings to soar passed springs

Where flower’s scent reminder brings

Perhaps those trees their shade might ease

How much the loss of kisses stings

-

But in these trees a playful breeze

Does tell my heart a tale to tease

That set its beats toward kisses crave

Till yonder cave my eyes do seize

-

Here in the dark I’m free to brave

Just why for these I am a slave

No plant or wind to torture thought

No idle lips to misbehave

-

But in the dark alone I sought

The source that started this onslaught

From pure delight this reckless flight

Another bright idea I got

-

Perhaps this thought just needs some light

A kiss to quench an appetite

Might bring some peace to this abyss

And set this endless riddle right

Mh, ah, yes the kisses sweeter than wine, would be very hard to dismiss no doubt! But no need to go into that abyss, as I am sure there will be plenty more to come along throughout this life - the kisses sweeter than wine. Very beautiful video and music. Voted Way Up to the Heavesn, except funny. God bless you dear one. In His Love, Faith Reaper

A good kiss can monopolize all our thoughts and drag us into a abyss of daydreams and remembering.

Great poem, so melancholy and beautiful.
