Stay Away


Your passioned kiss

Like a bullet to the brain

A moment of bliss

Rocked with exquisite pain


Each touch a fire

Burning through my heart

Trembles with desire

But tears my world apart


Every longing look

Colored in amorous shade

A come-hither hook

In eyes repeated and played


And loving words

Exhaled in angelic voice

Where desires are spurred

And override mere choice


This I must say

And sadly, I must insist

Please, please, stay away

With your love I can’t resist

    This is a lovely piece my friend. That third stanza was something else. Perhaps because it hit home a bit about how I could be in my early thirties. I love the “A come-hither hook” what a great line and I must admit I have been behind such a hook before. Never know where a look like that can lead. Great writing. Sending Love Brad and warm hugs.

      Thanks Jonikins! I am just not sure your vivaciousness retired after thirty. Sending tons of love!

        Well you are probably right my friend. I am smiling now. Ok you got me, as yes I can still communicate pretty effectively with my eyes. Thanks for all the love. Stay warm and safe. Love ❀️ Jonikins
