Lips To Kiss After Breakfast


Wanted most from you is the touching.
With a holding me and close.
Sincere and near to me as if to feed a craving,
Need like fresh jam or homemade jelly...
Spread on a warm piece of buttered toast.

'And you...
On my mind fixed to sit as if scrambled eggs,
Cooked and placed beside crisp and tasty bacon.
And your lips so tender I wish to quickly kiss,
After the crumbs from them you lick.'

To lick lips after breakfast is love.

'I agree.
Would you like two or three sugars in your coffee? '

I'll take the coffee.
But there are times I do prefer tea.

'Let's do the tea.
With lemon?
It makes the lips to kiss after breakfast,
More inviting for the tongue.'

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
