A Rainy Night and Red Lipstick. {Poem}

A rainy night and red lipstick

Red shoes and rainy lips

A kiss, a sweet and beautiful kiss

Warm mouths on this misty eve

Tender, natural, and extraordinary

Souls careless, aside, faraway

Internal fire and an easy drizzle

An empty alley, a newspaper stand, wet cigarette butts

Bliss and shivers in a damp city

Truth in essence, timeless, surrounds

Streetlights and dirty puddles

Two lovers under a red moon

Soft lips, tongues sampling, teasing, exploring

A loverʼs flavor, thrilling and distinct

Cold hands and cozy hearts

A slow train, a transvestite, a marred vodka ad

The experience of unity

The touch of another

The experience of breath

To return love

To feel a soul

To feel a soul

There is only the now, forever, eternity

Red nails and a black dress

Chocolate, wine, and mints

A late hour and slippery sidewalks

A burgundy umbrella, no taxi

Two warm hearts and a bitter wind

Heaven, open up, let it pour

A loose button and a red camisole

A tighter embrace, a deeper kiss

The soul carried in breath

A universal exchange

Hot skin and damp clothes

Let it rain; let it rain

Love and a kiss; let it rain

A 24-hour coffee shop, two barking dogs, a soggy newspaper

A loverʼs embrace

Giving and receiving

Shedding oneʼs skin; letting the other in

Last call, a wailing ambulance, a padlocked bakery

Two small figures, radiance in a showery city

A hot kiss and a polka dot bra

Stormy delights

A rainy night and red lipstick

Love abounds.

  5. […] we talk and to how we move. For me, sexy means getting out of my jeans and into a clingy dress, or putting on red lipstick, or letting my hips sway when I walk. There is not one kind of sexy. There is just your own version […]
