Kiss Life On The Lips

Linking with Poetry Jam a great place for writers that blog.


Life is a lover one must kiss on the lips if you want to feel its warm embrace.
You cannot merely touch its hand, or peck its soft sweet face.
Wrap your arms around it and hold it forever near.
Caress its naked truth and strip away your threads of fear.
Crawl into its cushioned bed and lie next to its reward of bliss.
For to live life to its fullest you must kiss it right on the lips.

  11. My favorite was the notion of caressing life's "naked truth."

    Life's naked truths for me include the ugly realities of death and dying and other sorrows, and I've had to work hard to integrate them in some way that keeps hope and joy alive. With help I found beauty in some dark places, and that's what your line speaks of to me. My heart's learning to rage and embrace at the same time.
