Just a kiss
to damn your heart
for eternity.

Gathering raindrops
like dreams,
revealing not
what the heart feels.

Within the fraction of light
secrets are kept
from curious eyes.

Kiss but don’t tell,
lick, and do it well.
The dark will hide
the deed
that shames the heart
that bleeds.

Glitter and shine,
