Lip-Lock




Lip-Lock

You and I
We—
Intertwined
In a knot

Bound in a
Web
Of our own
Invention

The spider
Spins—
Instinctive
Purposeful

Our random
Acts—
Fraying but
Still raveled

Still we weave
Our
History
In coarse twine

In your kiss—
Limbs
Intertwined—
I'm undone

    1. Alex, thanks. It was fun to think of what may have been before the kiss.

  2. Hi Theresa,
    I especially like the last line, "I'm undone," because it made me think about how love is beyond anyone's control and it really can "undo" people (and I mean that in a good way, of course).

  6. I enjoyed the weaving imagery of a kiss and by extension love ... Like the double helix spiral dance of tingling dna ...thanks

  7. Hi Theresa - you've certainly caught the feel of the title ... and in the black and white days ... life would be like that .. the stolen kiss, the probing of limbs and feel of body .. less is more ... then becoming 'undone' .. yes that can happen ..

    Cheers Hilary

  8. Yeah, for sure, all of this above can produce the desire of more...'undone' :) ~ Thanks for stopping by x

  9. Theresa,
    Hi! Nice to run into you again. I love your opening lines here and the ending...sigh, to come undone like that.
