To the one who’s next

When you kiss me
you shall taste all the men that have come before.
You will taste the desert on my tongue,
the scorching sun at the roof of my mouth,
the storm between my teeth.
You will know that you have brought something
that separates you from the rest.
You will taste
like fireworks wanting to never know peace.

  4. @buggani…I think i drowned somewhere in those lines for the simple elegance of the poem! It just pulsates with passion…and the shortness of it adds a lot of punch to it…It is easily one of the best poems I have read here on NS, hand to God! Thank you for sharing it…..

  11. Interesting! And the brevity makes it even more appealing. I find it funny too. What if “the one who’s next” isn’t different from the rest?
