after For M by Mikko Harvey


I didn't expect you to leave

red paint on my heart. 

Have you ever spoken

The first touch of our lips

You left a particle of amber, the most beautiful,

The Kiss

the kiss shouted passionately
you anguished tenderly
we kissed a placid mouth late
a desire loved us
the flower cuddled the languishing kiss slowly
