(Poetry) A Kiss Without Words

A Kiss Without Words

 

The petals are crushed

As they lie on the floor

With crowds passing over them

To whom they hold nothing

No significance at all

 

One drink too many

And a kiss with no words

And then a bed of momentary joy

It should have been a bed of nails

For all the pain it was worth

 

But I wasn’t blind

I knew what was happening

And anyway

I wanted it to

 

It’s not that I didn’t love you

Or I really didn’t care

I got carried away on emotion

Feelings that I should know by now

But then nothings that simple

Or that black and white

And I’m sorry if I brought you tears

 

But now we’re both older

And perhaps we’re both wiser

And the yesterdays have been forgotten

On the backs of lovers come and gone

We live two different lives now

And I’m glad it has all been done

 

The petals and the anger of a year ago

Have been lost inside

Somewhere along the way

Now I’ll accept a drink

In the company of others

And Ill taste their lips

As though there were no others

And I’ll ignore the pain

That I may receive

And I’ll just count my days

And I’ll count my hours

Till my judgement comes

And I’m discovered.
