All I Can Think Of...

I see your lips moving,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

I hear you speaking,
Offering feelings, thoughts and opinions,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

I hear a voice respond,
My voice,
Desperately grasping for proper replies,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

I see a renegade strand of hair,
Fall across your flawless face,
Obstructing my glorious view,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

I hear cars passing by the window,
The wind howling outside the door,
Stray cats fighting in the distance,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

The rent is due,
My car payment is late,
Heating oil is outrageous,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

My sciatica is acting up,
Every movement invites pain,
My deductible is insulting,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

The economy is bad,
My employers are suffering,
My job is tenuous at best,
And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

The world is at war,
The planet is on fire,
Children are starving,
Men and women suffer needlessly,
Religions and Governments fail their people daily,
Babies are born into poverty,
Old men die in ignominy,
Sense becomes nonsense.

And all I can think of,
Is how badly I want to kiss you.

How badly I NEED to kiss you.



Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

WOW DOC...This is intensely beautiful and so very, very true....I think you nailed it. I know for myself...when I have deep, deep thoughts like that for someone...when I am so in lust....nothing else seems to get thru except that one thought of how bad you want that person, whether it's a kiss or more.

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

Ahhhh.....such a simple, sweet diversion for a moments escape from a world gone mad. Sometimes a kiss is the only thing that makes sense.

I love that the meaning behind all aspects of your poem is that love conquers all. Through all of the day to day crap...there is still love.

slidein2meplz - Isn't it great when the rest of the world just melts away? BTW - Happy Birthday!!!

Mzhuny - I've got a little smooch for ya whenever you'd like!

KPB - Nuthin like kissin a lady, eh KPB? Sometimes, the little'ist thing...

sweetneeds2 - With those long, cold winter nights in your neck of the woods, I'll bet you've turned kissing into a true art form!

MWWwantsmore - Wouldn't it be great if that really was all it took? We can only keep trying and hope for the best!

Kiera - Sometimes, when time stops and the world assumes total silence and every other thought melts away, it seems that a kiss is mandatory, necessary, more important than breath itself. I'm sure you know - you've no doubt left many men praying for that moment. I know you have me!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

outstanding! ...and i appreciate the delicately perverse "swiftian" irony use especially towards the end.

well done

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...
