Last night’s kiss

a kiss left behind upon the leaves damp with dew
I’m peeling off each thoughtful verse waiting for the light
the wind rushing kisses upon the branches
I’ve have but left you for a moment
                                         and it feels like forever

last night
the moon couldn’t sleep
                  haunted by the kisses
hence this morning
             it’s all googly eyed perched on top of the buildings

last night
the mosquitoes overwhelmed by the scent of lilies marched across the verandah
they have no thought of biting
they were solemn
as we kissed each other

last night
the golden leaf has no desire of falling
pumping its chest up
   the shades of chlorophyll

last night
I’ve replaced my blood with yours
the world inside me
                     there’s no more day or night
