Salty Kisses

Are you able to taste

The salt left from my tears

Can you hear

The cracks in my voice

Would it even

Make a difference if you could

I used to matter

Now I feel so alone and rejected

I guess I’ll just

Sit down and cry again over you

Hello

The moment I said hello
My world changed
When your attention
Your touch
Your taste
All drew me in
Somehow we just fit
And every moment was alive

I can’t say why it ended
Sometimes these things just do
But it left me with
Insatiable memories
Me still wanting you

I’ll settle for the next best thing
A friendship built on love
That never went away
But some days I still wonder
Can we get a second chance

A chance to once again
Rekindle what might have been
With your attention
Your touch
Your taste
All that drew me in
That night so long ago
When I first said hello

Lollipop

Sugar on a stick
Give it a lick
Lollipop tastes so good
Wonder if I should
It’s not on my diet
I can’t help but try it
Cherry delight
Taste buds take flight
A return to childhood
If only I could
It turns my lips red
While thoughts in my head
Return to playgrounds
And the youthful sounds
Of happiness and laughter
Joys that I am after
and finally with a crunch
it ends my dessert from lunch
