Written for dVerse Poets Pub where Kim hosts Tuesday Poetics “Prelude to a Kiss”
It was icy that day driving
you complained you needed
I offered you mine
with the tip of my lip
your head dipped
then we crashed
and I finished off your
mouth in the most

Wow – what an amazing tension and ending – perfect word play. This is stunning and delicious. Brava!
Thanks so much, it was a fun write!! 💋💘
oooh la la Trish 🌹
Thanks, Cindy! I had so many different endings running through my head on this one, but trying to keep it PG 😉🍷
It was a fun one for sure and I’ll be imagining all of the endings.. ha🤣
yes, keeping this page clean for the kids! 😆
Car crash kiss. Such fun this one, Tricia.
Thanks, wasn’t sure where this write was going at first, but it was fun to follow this couple! 😆
Yes, they swerved right and left on you.😀 I like that there is a kiss on the end to let us know all is well.
Yes, I think “crashed” *could* just refer to their bodies or mouths here, but really, doing that while driving on an icy road is not recommended! 😆
Whew, oh la la on the crash and ending, smiles!
These were some crazy teens, need their driver’s license revoked! 😆
An interesting story told in a few acceptable words. 💝
Thanks for reading, so happy you enjoyed! 🥰
Sure, I quite enjoyed. Feel most welcome 🤗
I was expecting some word play poems when I read this prompt and you delivered a perfect one! albeit not a very subtle one hehe.
Thanks, Jay! This one flowed pretty fast for me, it was fun to cruise along with these lovebirds! 🥰💘
Ah, the chapstick! Your poem made me smile, Tricia. I hope no one was hurt in the course of the icy kiss. I really like the speed of the build-up, enhanced by the short lines, and the repetition of ‘organic’, a cheeky bit of wordplay.
Thanks so much, Kim! Great prompt idea, all the poems have me hot under the collar! 🥵
Oh steamy !
Thanks for dropping by my blog.
Appreciate the love, have a great day, Gillena! 💋💘
Ooh la la 😀 this is such a delicious write, Tricia! The ending left me breathless ❤️❤️
Thanks, Sanaa!! 💋💘
You little devil, you! This put a huge smile on my face and I immediately reached for my chapstick – coconut oil flavored, of course! 💋
so happy it entertained (and your lips are now softer)‼️ 💘
WOW! Tricia this is one of your best pieces. I absolutely love it…THE ENDING!!! Omg you are so talented. So amazingly done, my friend. I’m not often speechless, but this piece definitely makes me speechless 🤍🤗
💋💋💋 I need to write more kissing poems it seems! 🤣 Love your comments, thanks for reading!! 🌸💐🌸
Love it… living on the edge!
Thrills and Chills! ‼️ 🤣
I must be the only person who read this and thought, vampire.
🤣 well I do tend to pen a lot of vampire stories, so you always have to beware! 💋
Ah! That explains it 🙂
I love the way you used playfulness with the chapstick only to end in a crash…
Thanks, Bjorn! 💋💘
Would that every crash be so delicious!
🤣💯thanks, Brendan! 💋
