Kissing the Ceiling

Kissing the Ceiling - Tamar and Noah (2008) by Fred Muram

I have heard of ghosts
who leave stains on the ceilings of houses when
their inhabitants are not looking

I will be the ghost
I will kiss your white tiled ceiling
and leave a blood red lipstick stain 

Come morning
when you open your eyes and
gaze up
I will be watching

Your smile or
your scowl will decide
whether I stay
for breakfast.

Hey, she's cute. Why should the ceiling have all the fun?

I like your poem. No sense rushing into anything. See if they're worthy of your haunt, first!

Nice...and hot :)

Fantastic poem, Lola. I enjoy the ambiguity of it and all the possibilities of a smile or scowl that will determine whether or not this lover stays.

Anyone who kisses my ten foot ceiling will deserve serious respect.

But, that aside, a cute writing, acute writing.

ha...hope for his sake it is a smile...

This was so cute. Loved it

I agree with Fireblossom, almost a feeling that kiss could have been better served enticing those soon to be pleasured by bacon and eggs. Can't imagine a scowl greeting them.

Christine said...

ah yes the particulars are all in the kiss

I've never woken up to see that.

But I'd sure love to!
