A kiss, to me, is a moment of intimacy. A fleeting moment, but a moment still.
It is a part of me that I give, I give for free. It is a part of me, that you can have. You can see. Everything else that has a price. That even I cant afford most days. Most months.
For a kiss, is physical. Love is everything else, it is emotional, mental, intellectual and spiritual. Those things I don’t give to myself let alone someone else.
But for that small moment, I am yours. I am everything I want to be. Then our lips part and I run. I self-sabotage. Even more so with someone I really like.
Lingering in silence, I am my worst company
But am I my greatest enemy?
After all is said after all is gone
Did I do my best
For what is done?
Pain besides me it lingers in my breath
For every word unspoken
For every death.
Forgetful dreams and wishful tears
For all the things I miss
For all of those years.
Through the pain and the glory of all the battles, I have seen
The worst defeat was for those
who have never been.
Whose ashes sway in the wind through the day and the night
Through the darkest hours
And through the light.
As time carries me on my feet shall fall
I know I still go on
I have given my all.
Even in the silence I still hear their cheers
Their almighty roars
Of all their forgotten fears.
