The Mouth


A mouth will betray you it doesn’t hide

Your deepest wants or dark desires

Truth or dare or lets just see

A scarlet tinctured gash swearing profanities

 Pink rose bud singing words pure and sweet

Luscious peach that makes you bow and weep

A yellow stained pot of putrid breath

Dripping red gloss leaving stains of pain

Pale nude dry rough as sand paper

Devoid of knowledge, lovelife or caper

Lizard licking trickery devious intent

A whisker and lipstick so seriously bent

Wit and intellectual spiels from thin lines

Passions full lips tantalize and entwine

Toothless gobs muttering verborrhea

The perfection of a model’s leer

Newborns purity precious unique

Virgin angelical a life to seek

Natural lips that outdo rose red

With the morning dew of lovers fed

The mouth is your story or fantasy

Of who you really want to be

  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, 😋
