Inexplicable Kiss
UHamilton

Inexplicable Kiss
 1
 
 
By Uriah Lee Hamilton
 2
 
 
 
 
Will she cry with me
 3
Thinking of childhood dances
 4
And innumerable lovely memories?
 5
 
 
Ghost stories at campfire parks,
 6
Chivalry at water fountains and merry-go-rounds,
 7
She held my arm at the amusement park,
 8
I thought my heart would stop on the rollercoaster
 9
Feeling her breath like an inexplicable kiss.
 10
 
 
I want to live my life for ecstatic highs
 11
And to hear her voice at candlelight dusk;
 12
To move around through a city
 13
As romantic streetlights cast loving glances
 14
Into the sweet and drunken night.
 15
 
 
I happen to be a lonely poet
 16
Writing immortal poetry
 17
Near the place of our rendezvous tree;
 18
It doesn’t matter where this lullaby ends
 19
Nor where I awake to a stark reality,
 20
I wrote it as a prayer for her protection.
