And it Started with A Kiss


Kiss me that hard,
that deep.

Punctuate the sentence of us
with your tongue.

Make a victim of the air
with your hands.

Dance with me until I can’t
stop sparking to your drumbeat
thighs and comprising hips.

Let your lightning enter and defile me.
Douse me with the sweat of roses

Write me over in thorns and
petal blossoms.

Let the bees pollinate

Honeyed and satiated.
I come unhinged.

-Tosha Michelle

    Have you written any stories? If so, are they here too? If you have – they are bound to be sensuous and entirely transcendent at the same time.
    You make me feel a variety of things, Tosha – do you know that?
    Kind regards – Robert.

        You should SERIOUSLY consider writing some fiction. You have such a perfect way of putting words together with feelings that it would be a crying shame if you did not at least try! πŸ™‚

      2. Well they do say that you should write about what you love. πŸ™‚
        How about a story about a fire in a British chocolate bakery where the baker must choose between saving his prize chocolate recipes, or the woman he loves, only to find that she has started the fire with his recipes and is …

    wow! Sis, I hope a man comes into your life and treats you like a queen. I love this so much sis, another of my favorites. I’ve lost track how many poems I love from yours. πŸ™‚
