A Passionate Kiss

Feelings of comfort
That where my heart can endlessly rest
The contents darkly of my mind, I dare not speak
Keeping my tounge in cheek
The act of kindness, an idea so bold
But holding you in my arms, a passionate fold
Drawing me in through your eyes
Drawn together, like the seas and the skies
Lips lock, a short lasting but longing bliss
To embrace for us, a passionate kiss

To hold in my will
Time and space both hold still
It's not any lustful temptation, or sinful charms
Not a moment outside the embrace of your arms
Fly my body in a down low
To that secret place all souls go
To a place of rest
To lay my weary head on your breast

Myself in a trance of divine
Like a drunkard, filled with sweet wine
None would dare take that moment, not even death
No, he wouldn't dare to take your breath
As the stars within, a wonder the day old night
For me, such a wonderful delight
For we were together then
As I ask, when could it happen again?

Joseph Shofner

I'm 17, soon to turn 18 this Summer. I'm going to college to become a Geologist this Summer & following Fall. I like writing poems, but I've somewhat stopped in the past month or so. But in the time I did write (For about 6 months - 1 year) I wrote several hundred, most of which I "fixed" by making them better. Most of my poems are about love, as love is a very important (but not prominent) thing in my life. I believe love is an expression of the best of things, and poetry is an expression of love, so with poetry I express my love (Since I can't in other ways) I'll try to publish a poem a day (Maybe more, as I have them written down, but have to re-type them all when publishing them onto here) Also I'm working on a booklet of around 30-50 of my best poems re-mastered to try & win a girl I like over. I don't know who she is, as the school year is about over, but I'm sure I'll meet someone at college who appreciates it as much as I do. Any questions/ want to talk message me at joealexshof@yahoo.com more…
