Kiss Me

Kiss me and make it seem better,
Kiss me and quiet my heart,
I never once asked for a letter,
Stating you wanted to part.

Kiss me and declare you were wrong dear,
Kiss me and confirm it's okay,
Say all those things that I so want to hear,
And wipe all my tears away.

Kiss me and let's stay together,
Kiss me and pour out the wine,
Sit with me on my sofa of leather,
And say that everything will be fine.

Kiss me and tell me you love me,
Kiss me with passion to spare,
Don't think of leaving, that is my plea
And also my ardent prayer.

Kiss me, I need you so deeply,
Kiss me, what more can I say,
But with reality looming before me,
This dream has just melted away.

Nice use of words and imagery. The poet succeeded in bringing to life what many considered ordinary. The hallmark of a good poet
This is really cool.... I need to read more of James' pieces... On the quarter thumbnail of the moon... What a wonderful description of this pond holding tadpoles who can not see - can not chase the light yet... This is really cool...
They can't see! However, the ways of life are not always smooth. Nice piece.
So sad how these fated small frogs met their death. When time arrives death overtake life in matter of seconds. Nice poem.
