A Waking in a Kiss

 

By Lisa Michelle Arhontidis

A waking in a kiss

Cold lips in black light,

There is a life here that does not sleep

Between the sheets of memory, wrapped

She beckons and I heed, this endless

Obsession of souls, commands:

Drink these lips.

  1. That first line is amazing. “A waking” what a way to set a tone and get the reader thinking about the possibility of other meanings. Excellent poem and your spotlight rocks too!
