Salty Rum Kisses. {Adult}


Sweet rum and salty sweat,

Team up to make

A perfect kiss.

Liquor burns our throats

Kisses sustain us entirely.

Honesty grows

Boundaries dissolve

Mouths speak truths

That we’re usually too scared to speak.

Tempers flare

Truth so raw it hurts

Flows and flows

Like thick mango nectar.

And then we kiss.

Salty sweat and sweet rum,

A perfect kiss

That anchors us.

We’re not always so good at being open.

We’re scared shitless to be vulnerable.

Tonight, we drop our grand acts and sequined masks,

We bare it all.

And we kiss.

Salty sweat and sweet rum,

Tearing open starving hearts,

Sprinkling truth in our hungry souls.

Tonight, we bare it all,

The air is filled with freedom.

Kiss me,

With your salty, rum-stained lips.
