I Want To Kiss Everything

I want to kiss everything,
With full lips,
Hunt for poems,
Underneath the lamp of night.
Seduce mystery,
And become her secret lover.

I want to comfort misery.
Quietly approach her,
Late in the evening,
asleep In bed.
Kiss her gently on her warm cheek,
And tell her I love her.

She dreams like we all do.

I want to dance with misfortune, under a crystal chandelier.
In a ballroom filled with lavish gowns and champagne.
She blushes when I whisper in her ear.
And all the men with their top hats and fancy pocket watches grovel for her hand.

She’ll never be lonely again.
