Lips



 

Your lips carry such sweet words, such honey, your lips carry with them the key to my demise. Your mouth, the curves that it makes, the circles that it envelops as you feed my heart with little nothings. I ofter think, I ponder, how is it they are so sweet, so delicate, how they drip with honey and yet sputter carefully inter-twinned half truths?

I wonder how you live, lie and lie again, live to lie, live in a lie, live for a lie? Your choice is full of comfort and a cushy residence for your number one priority, yourself.

Your lips, so enticing, so venomous, so corrupt, so poorly made for uttering I love you's.

I still touch them with mine, carefully tasting every lie, carefully savoring the last moments before our good bye.

Beautifully bittersweet. Well written but hopefully not from experience. Be well!

This isn't really my kind of poetry, I find it hard to follow, but I really loved the paragraph on lies. It was a beautiful use of alliteration. I like the idea behind the poems, the meaning comes across clear. <br />

"I wonder how you live, lie and lie again, live to lie, live in a lie, live for a lie?" - that is an AWESOME line :D<br />

Good luck with your poetry!
