Some Kiss We Want

There is some kiss we want with
our whole lives, the touch of
spirit on the body. Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling!

At night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine. Breathe into
me. Close the language- door and
open the love window. The moon
won't use the door, only the window.

  3. "And the lily, how passionately
    it needs some wild darling!"- Oh my I got to show this to Draco and all my girls. So sweet! None of your students knew you were into poems, especially those that contains Lily/lily word playing. *evil Grin* - Pansy

  4. Thank you Pansy. There is a reason why my students don't know certain facts about me. And it should remain as such.
