Those Lips (New poem from my next book).

Those Lips


Anthony Labson

Full both in form and emotion.

It’s an insult to cover them

with flavored additions

that just remove from their

Natural beauty.

If touching her

with my unworthy curves

meant carried the price

of losing breath.

I would gladly welcome asphyxia.

Why would a pair of curves

be worth a precious gift?

Because having life and living it

are two different things.

To have been blessed by them is a miracle.

There are a million others

so why are these above all?

The answer is quiet simple

and yet, very powerful.

These lips belong to the woman I love.
