A Nostalgic Kiss


Nostalgia
With her hoisted flag
Fluttering in the winds of time
As the lips reminisce
A soft tenderly kiss
When your tapestry of garnets
Painted in a delicate shade of rouge
Enwrapped your world
On my naked lips
As I glimpsed at your boundless universe
At your vast galaxy of love
Strewn with speckles of luminosity
Beaming from the star-lit heavens
As I gazed at my orbiting planet
Circumnavigating your sun
Magnetized to your field of energy
You aura that perpetuated desire
That drew me like a butterfly to a flower
As I held on to the ledge of your lips
The saliva seeping tenderly
A kiss, a sweet succulent kiss
That held me for an eternity
Now relegated to a nostalgic moment
A soft perpetuating ripple
That propagates your memory
In the torrents of time
