The Memory Of A Kiss



The Memory Of A Kiss
James WF Roberts

Whispers on the wind,
The changing of the tide;
Echoes of love and hate
As the world keeps on going…
In out…in out…
The breath stirs deep in the valley
Of the chest as a touch of a hand
And the feel of lips upon lips;

Where are you now?
What are we doing?
Words buzz on a bright blue screen,
Nothing changes, except for hours and days

Moonlight falls upon my window
Tonight, do we sleep under the same moon?
Or, again are we in a different time zone?

Pour a glass of wine,
My reflection in the red,
I keep thinking of your lips
One touch was fire,
One embrace was ice?
Ain’t funny how quickly things can change

The dream before the idea,
The thought before the words,
The anxiety before the action,
And then rolling up and down the hills of bliss
But, all that now, is just a memory of a kiss

Only contact now, just Ones and Zeroes
Jumbled up in a blue line, as the smallest
Words on the screen, say hello/goodbye/stay safe
Even when we say worse than; “Go to Hell;

All of this and so much more,
Echoes around my mind;
Time and time again,
All of this, the pain and the bliss,
From just the memory of a kiss

About jameswfrobertsdapoet

Emerging Poet and Writer. From Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. I present a show called Crazy Talk/Word Berserk, on www.phoenixfm.org.because I believe in what Phoenix has to offer. No where else will you get the diversity of Gospel, Country music shows, Koori themed shows and Poetry and Experimental music? My father, Bryan did a show on 3CCC in the 1980’s called the Keyboard Hour for a bout 8 years, until he died. That is partly why I joined Phoenix but mainly it’s because of the diversity we offer people and also I really do feel that we are an important vehicle, an important voice for the Community at Large. My interests are Poetry, Literature, Music, Movies, Cultural Awareness and Philosophical pursuits. My show is basically a Late Night Radio Show for Artists, Poets, Musicians and Creative Thinkers of all types to come and inform, enjoy, entertain and inspire each other. So join me and my guests from the local Artistic Community to be inspired, to be entertained and informed
