Reminiscing is such a pleasant mental exercise

A good kiss is far more eternal then even love

Mental Closet Slighty Untidy!!!

I thought I might 
have a new poem 
while I was 
rooting around 
in the clutter 
of my brain cavity.
Thoughts were all
lying in a jumble 
like the puzzle 
on the funny pages, 
scrambled with no clue 
until fully reassembled.
I searched and sorted 
through stuff 
that hadn't seen 
the light bulb over 
my head in years.
Cobwebbed gray matter 
left to wallow in the mass 
like fruit suspended 
in two month old jello.
But then suddenly 
I came upon a memory 
long forgotten 
and it overwhelmed me.
Creativity vanished 
under  brainwaves
of nostalgia 
as I surfed the flow.
I studied that 
dusty file turning 
each page reverently 
even though 
it was just a kiss 
from a girl who 
never was 
more then 
just a few kisses.
But God the 
even now 
through my mind flew.
Her dark hair 
in lengthy tresses 
and brown eyes 
that grabbed 
and held me 
like the fingers 
of an eager bride.
The feel of her hair 
across my 
chest and neck, 
tickling me 
as she bent 
to plant bliss 
on my lips, 
in a manner 
so graceful 
and loving that, 
I thought for sure 
she was the one.
Like a thirsty colt 
suckling milk 
I strained to hold 
her lips there forever 
but she was gone in 
just several months 
till now.
When she tumbled 
all these many years later 
out of the clutter 
of my mind's 
collected obscurities.
No poem... 
this time 
just a fond 
face crinkling
grin over 
of a kiss 
and the smile 
it still brought to me.
