Pad Challenge Day 8

Today’s prompt was a violence poem. I felt a little flummoxed by this choice and thought I would try to come at it from a different way. Here’s what I came up with.



Sitting upon my bar stool

slightly above your eyes,

Eyes that are melting as I

tilt my head in that timeless approach.

Nervous, tense, but happy

your eyes acquiesce

and I close mine with confidence.

Permission has been given!

My lips find yours and a wave of passion sweeps

from my brain to your soul,

then back again.

We kiss tenderly, slowly, then the fire

builds, stoking the engine of our passion.

You dive in violently, my lip exploding

with pain

and pleasure!

Is that blood?

My breath is gone and though I want

this moment to live forever; I must breathe.

We seperate smiling, acknowledging that small

moment of violence, that moment of passion…

our first kiss.
