How do you measure a kiss?

a décolletage . . . kiss?
scoop me up easy
plant a lingering kiss
bursting up for air
Sweet oxygen! had you practiced this?
coz the world ceased
that e t e r n a l moment
unasked questions
problems unsolved
circling a dangerous slippery place
where nothing else matters anymore
you sucked your lips over the breast of my heart
and swallowed it.
who does that?
what did you do to me?
that was no ordinary kiss
you sucked my desire
beyond the reach of my will
playing “keep away”
with short arms
my arms are too short!
like a sputnik
helpless little space cadet
in weightless gravity free zone
caught unescapable
head arched /eyes rolled/ lips parted
I followed where you led me . . .
I know
I stopped you
I stopped us . . .
whispered “Don’t . . . you’ll wake me up”
But the truth was

you already had. . .

so how do you measure
kiss . . . ?

How do you measure a kiss?
do I need to invent something?
please place lips squarely over the dotted lines. . . .

    Passion is gooey wet sticky and feels great . A true Kiss I think is experienced as given.

    The most intoxicating of all drugs if done properly, it causes the brain to ignite all sources of body pleasure simultaneously until youre dizzy and beyond control of rational thinking, impairing judgement for a glorious moment :) How to measure…by the degree of satisfaction and the longing for another and another, LOL….oh yeah !!! Nice one Y !

  • whoa . . that’s a mouthful Larry. I’m feeling more scientific by the moment! Thank you for your theory. :))

    a kiss is measured by missed beats of the heart maybe and probably reality disappears and dreams take over
    interesting question yvonca i`m sure its what makes the world go around tho

  • sooo . . i should put all the beakers and test tubes away?
    I need a double blind study here ASAP.
    Hold all my calls. and bring in 12 cc’s of chocolate.

    Sometimes they are nonsensical that make this poem..

  • yes. i think chemistry is “undefinable.” It starts on it’s own leaving a lasting impression. and a lot of unanswered questions. :)) Thank you for stopping in. Nice to see you.
