Autumn Kiss

February 14, 2016 | By

An intensely passionate love poem, celebrating the emotional fervour of the lovers.

autumn kiss

“I long for an autumn kiss, Your lips, an olive tree, Shades my benevolence, In this dark murky heath.”
Artwork by Sufia Khatoon

Under the clear sky,
A vast world awaits,
A cosmic creation,
Held in my palms,
Gazed out.

He, my soul subtly whispered,
“I long for an autumn kiss,
Your lips, an olive tree,
Shades my benevolence,
In this dark murky heath.”

The crimson moon stood frozen,
Autumn leaves crackled,
Wolf’s howled death’s song,
Winter chilled my veins,
He stood below the olive tree,
All night long,
My lips quivered, a glance,
Embracing an autumn kiss.
