A Healing Kiss

Bearing a crown of thorns
Someone planted a kiss
Scarring my face, the spikes
Pricked deep, letting
A stream of blood down

But,

Like a gush of summer rain
It cooled my smouldering spirits
Slumbered my frayed nerves
And loosened my taut muscles!

    What a wonderful poem you have presented us! The eye catching title attracts, and then when one reads the poem, one is left bewildered, open to an array of enigmatic questions- how can a kiss that pricks and lets 'a stream of blood down', be so cooling and soothing? Obviously the thorns, the spikes, the pricks and 'stream of blood' are metaphors, as is the 'gush of summer rain'. The two contrasting metaphorical portrait is uncommon, but not altogether unknown. Some (or many?) of us may find such contrasts in our own lives, if we take a journey down the memory lane and discover how wonderfully the scenario matches our own experience.
    This poem deserves nothing less than 10/10.

    Wow, so well written, short but sweet.

    A bitter-sweet poem from your poetic pen, Valsa. Oxymoron exquisitely detailed, as is simile and alliteration and metaphor also. The rose is a very beautiful flower, the thorns are for the flower's own protection, but situations in life can be rough, at the same time healing and your finely crafted poem expresses this so artistically to your readier. Thank you for sharing, Valsa... Blessings always...

    A healing kiss is like a balm that relaxes the nerves and soothes the
    soul. When given it can also wash out the impurities of the heart and
    give it a new jump start that in turn enlivens the body and spirit. A very
    inspiring write.
