There is in this world no such force as the force of a person determined to rise. The human soul cannot be permanently chained.

This quote though…

Thought for today!

I Have Known Your Lips

I love this poem!!

Elan Mudrow

95eda6d8546824d9085a01edeb8ba290

Ones that have touched me

With a smile

Soft and warm

 

Lips that have spoken

Of concerns,

Straight talk heard

 

The shape of a cry

Salt river, running down

To each end of your kiss

 

Sternness crumpled up

In a wrinkle

Of anger held in

 

Laughter submerged,

Bursting out

Into raw eruption

 

Hiding a tongue

Who dares

To search for my inner secrets

 

Bitten in frustration

Then licked

Back to life, healed

 

Brushed by fingers

Insecure, then

Trust built of tender breath

 

Lips heated, a hotness

Quenchless allure

I have been opened

 

Hushed by the myriad

Articulate silence

Speaks outside the turn

 

Lips form our orbit

Impressed upon

Paper notes from distance
