Dry Lips #dVersepoets “Prelude to a Kiss”

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

(vanilla scented)
(all natural)

the application
first gentle

with the tip of my lip
your head dipped

tires slipped
then we crashed

and I finished off your
mouth in the most

      1. 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! ๐Ÿ˜†

  1. 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 โ€˜organicโ€™, a cheeky bit of wordplay.

  2. Ooh la la ๐Ÿ˜€ this is such a delicious write, Tricia! The ending left me breathless โค๏ธโค๏ธ

  3. WOW! Tricia this is one of your best pieces. I absolutely love itโ€ฆTHE ENDING!!! Omg you are so talented. So amazingly done, my friend. Iโ€™m not often speechless, but this piece definitely makes me speechless ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค—
