Forehead Kisses


When you kissed me like that
I felt my body melt toward you
I felt this as love and respect
I was wrong
When you kissed me like that
You were perfunctory and cool
Thinking of something else
You held out resentment
I grabbed it and tried
To make it equal the love
That was in my heart
I was wrong to try.
When you kissed me like that
I saw only who I thought you were
Missing all the small signs that
Told me a different story
When you kissed me like that
You tried to show me
Your true intentions
I am sorry I could not see them
Because you kissed me like that.

I live and work in a beautiful place with a river and beach and the wild west coast. Having grown up without a TV, as a family we read a lot. This lead to me writing a lot which in turn lead to a habit of writing poetry to make sense of my world. My grandmother painted. Lovely oils and water colours which she encouraged me to try. For many years I did very little, life was not conducive to creativity until came a time when life turned on its head and suddenly I found expression in creativity with the Intentional Creativity method taught by Shiloh Sophia McCloud in her Color of Women training. So here I am, writer, artist, ritual maker showing my offerings to the world.
