A Kiss in Your Pocket: Lucky (#AtoZChallenge #LovePoetry)

Lucky

You are a blaze I
never want to extinguish—
Come to my bed, warm
pillow, lay your body next
to mine. How lucky am I?

I look in your eyes,
see a fire I thought had died
within me—your love
sparked a flame doused by proud men,
but with a kiss, I ignite

A Kiss in Your Pocket: Happily (#AtoZChallenge #LovePoetry)

Happily

Morning, you’re brighter
than the sun today; let me
brush the hair from off
your face—skin gleaming like light—
Hon, have you seen your own smile?

A Kiss in Your Pocket: Gazing (#AtoZChallenge #LovePoetry)

Gazing

After the rain, clouds
cleared just enough for me to
spot one star, and on
it, I wished for you—to see
your eyes, when I open mine

A Kiss in Your Pocket (Bonus Post): First Kiss (#AtoZChallenge #LovePoetry)

Today, I dreamt of our
first kiss, how you asked
for my forehead, and then
my lips—you were half
out the door, but I pulled
you back in—Oh, how I
wish I could kiss you again

I hope you enjoyed my bonus “F” post for the A to Z Challenge! This isn’t really part of my A Kiss in Your Pocket theme, but if I were to published my chapbook of pocket-sized love poems, this one just might make the cut… 🙂

A Kiss in Your Pocket: Fresh (#AtoZChallenge #LovePoetry)

Fresh

In your movements, such
grace, like freshly washed bed sheets
fluttering in the spring breeze

Open me up, test
how fertile the ground—love me,
frequently, as bunnies do

A Kiss in Your Pocket: Diabetic (#AtoZChallenge #LovePoetry)

Diabetic

Candied apple pie,
drizzle down, sweet caramel,
your lips taste divine;
To sacrifice, darling—for
you, I’d gladly lose a limb
