in his kiss

what's not to like?
each cherry lip gloss kiss
seduce innocence
into the warmth
of a gentle predator -

whose eyes relive
the chase of heartbeats
and silent dances
where only hearts
could hear...

what's not to miss?
each collared shirt
and musky perfume,
lavender lace
and high-heeled shoes -

such differences
cascade to hold
each longing embrace
into the littlest part
of eternity...

what's not to love?
when in this prison
freedom lives,
when in this secret
truth survives -

and in his arms
she is saved,
in her kiss
he is made immortal...

and for once
sin has saved them all...
