Mouth Me

lipsgif

If you were a mouth nothing more nothing less

What thoughts and sentiments would you express

Watched closely you can see what it can be

A scarlet vermil tinctured gash swearing profanities

A pink rose bud singing words so pure and sweet

Luscious peach that makes you bow and weep

A yellow stained pot of putrid breath

With singeing puffs from wilted lungs left

Dripping red gloss leaving stains of pain

Pale nude dry rough as sand paper

Devoid of knowledge, love, life or caper

Lizard licking trickery devious intent

A whisker and lipstick so seriously bent

Flowing words of a canaries song

Or laced with ice to make them wrong

Wit and intellectual spiels from thin lines

Passions full lips tantalize and entwine

Toothless gobs of verborrhea

Perfection portrayed in a Model’s leer

Newborns purity precious unique

Virgin angelical a life to seek

Natural lips that outdo rose red

With morning dew of lovers fed

Our mouths tell a story you cannot hide

What is truly you trapped inside

Sentiments and emotions linger there

Constituting beauty

Mouth me I dare

  1. This is fantastic. It had my mouth stretched tight across my face and curled upward in the corners? Strange. My eyes however raced across the next line eager to be shocked or soothed by your sweat and sour, contradictive, juxtaposed, brilliantly composed poem. I am going to direct a friend of mine to this poem. I think you’ll have a new fan as soon as he gets wind of this.
    Bravo my Australian friend.
    I hope you are well, apologies for my lack of activity, my plate is little less full and so maybe I can return to my writing. Watch this space kid,

    • Thank you dear Henry! I was happy with how this poem progressed. I too have an overflowing plate with a stressful new full time job which allows very little time for my own self indulgence. I look forward to more of yours 🙂

      • I really cannot express just how good I think this poem is. I wish I could more than like it. I hope you can continue to find time to write these little pearls of poetry. I think I need them, 😋
