Every Time I Kiss You

Every time I kiss you
After a long separation
I feel
I am putting a hurried love letter
In a red mailbox.

not me lol... and yes, you got me in the title... i don't think most poets would have this problem... i am finding out that poets are super human beings... they are beyond constraints. they are capable of just about anything and every thing under the sun and above. stay inspired! love, k
okay the poem caught me too P/S also an enjoyable read
Dog gone it- you got me! This is very clever, Scarlet! An absolute 10!
Definitely got me in with the title. I expected a usual type of a poem, just to stumble accross this interesting piece! Preets
I like this Scarlett. It would be nice to play around with it rather than have it in two stanzas. It's an interesting piece though.
