30 August 2011

Like movie hero moments, makes my hair stand on end
Like a pair of old trousers, makes a tightening distend

Like snowflake fall on skin, sends shivers and chills
Like queues at the fun fair, expectation of thrills

Like the air of the tropics, warm and moist as we lean
Like lipstick with a double scrummy scoop of ice cream

Like thunderstorms, sparks followed by rumbled noise
Like winning the lottery, imbuing pure joys

Like a blow to the head, makes me spin all intense
Like a deaf, blind and dumb man, I lose all my sense

Like unwound wind up clocks, time now standing still
Like a trainspotting junky with euphoric lost will

Like waterfalls of honey, sweet and gooey inside
Like a homeward bound swallow on warm currents glide

Like a non-British summer day, making me glow
Like electro shock therapy to the nethers below

Like an unsteady mountaineer falls in an abyss
Like nothing I’ve felt before, like your tender kiss

    Sounds like that kiss was more than like, beating out some many things not of the like. Your piece I like.

  6. My imagination took me all over the place trying to figure out what “like” was going to be. Very fun approach. You could probably do a whole chapbook on “like” poems!

  7. Now that is a great description of a kiss. Excellent!

    oh yes a kiss can be just that…really cool piece…i was wondering where you were going and then it made perfect sense….

  9. Like it.

    I was just hoping it was going to, like, go somewhere…but I’m glad it went to a kiss, because a kiss is like nothing else.

  10. Oh how cool that you left the kiss till the very last. I was enjoying all the images for themsleves, then it all made super sense.

    All that and more — yes! kissing is very very good when you’re with the one you want to kiss.

    enjoy those kisses!

      Sorry Heaven, I thought I had replied to your comment before, but I obviously hadn’t! Ooops…

    Deeply expressed, I enjoyed how you made it a string of couplets it lent to the reading nicely. Enjoyed this ~ Rose
