POEM: More in a Kiss than Lips


I wrote this love letter many years ago. Like at least fifteen years. Probably longer. I confess, when I found this in a pile of old writing, it took me a minute to remember who I wrote it for, or if I gave it to them at all. I guess I cherished it more than they did, if I did in fact deliver it.

Maybe I created this for myself. This is often why art comes into form.

Regardless, I figured it should live again, and decided it was worth sharing here. For the hopeless romantic in us all. ;)

More in a Kiss


I can't see anything else, do anything but melt.I'm a liquid sigh of sunshine in a drunken gaze.I speed further into feeling, deeper in this daze.
I fall into your eyes and time trips over gravity.Colours crystallize like ice in a magic sea.This creature we make as we melt is so free,Feels like I'm in your mind as you think into me.
You and your echo in the thick of what I'm made of,In the stone rainbow soul of my heart house of love.In my stirred ice-cream mind where imagination lives,Play these light tricks of laughter and the energy you give.
Breathe more into your hair and ear and chest and sigh,Touch down up my spine, hand pours over my thigh.Stretch more into your legs and arms and breath and hips.Closer skin, tighter hold, more in a kiss than lips.This poem has been pulled from my Steem blog for use in publication.

I must say, I'm impressed with the artistry I put into this. I used to create cards like this often, back in the days when I had free time and I wasn't using it to write novels (or binge-watch Netflix).

When is the last time you wrote a love letter, or created something inspired by love? Have you ever written a letter to yourself? (I think a love letter to yourself is a fabulous idea!)

Thanks for reading. :)

Whatever happens, keep singing your song!
Peace. @katrina-ariel

In the stone rainbow soul of my heart house of love.

Wow, you were pretty fanfrigntastic back in the Stone age too! Lol I absolutely adore the parchment and decoration. Adds the personal touch that can only come from your hand. And it's true, much more in a kiss than just lips. Top of my list for intimate interaction. Stone rainbow soul though. Still guarding the freedom back then?

Pretty much. I mean, stone walls take a while to build up. Been working on them forever. ;) And that is my favorite line in the piece. Thank you for seeing me.

Thank you for letting me see, love. Now, if we can just devote a little more time to things like these and a little less to the Netflix binging...lmao we'd be set! Luna and I did Flash a few weeks ago and we're cracking into Arrow now.

Struggling through season 6 of Arrow. I loved the first 3 and am committed to seeing it to the end but interesting how much I notice the change over the course of the show. But I'm also writing a new manuscript, and spending lots of time with kids and outside. Sometimes all I have energy for is to sit back and be entertained.

That's nice! Everyone needs to feel that way, at least once. Hopefully more often, and for great lengths of time.

More in a kiss than lips.... I love that phrase and it is soo True 😉
I love your love letter and the art on your paper.. I did much of letters and writing in my school years, and dorky poems with doodling.. Lol

Well written and as the romantic person I am.. This made me smile and hear that young heart of @katrina-ariel 💖 just as beautiful.

I love your idea about a love letter to yourself.. Hardest letter to write but would mean alot right? Force ourselves to focus on The good things about ourselves.. The beauty 😊
Easy to se in others but harder to se in ourselves... Im one of them 🙈 lol

Thank you for sharing this and what a tressure to find old letters and writing from your younger years 🤗🌹💖

I'm so glad you like it. And of course you can relate, because you're you! 💖

As for the love letter to yourself, I'll do it if you will! Powerful stuff that, recognizing yourself. You praise others all the time, encourage everyone else, but we have to feed ourselves. Everything is about balance, right?

Thank you! Yes, that was a fun sketch. I really got into gel pens back then, with their metallic shine.

Right? Times change, I guess. But we can always start doodling romantically again. ;)

Whoever it was for they were very lucky, it's a beautiful poem and very artistically decorated. It looks like this was etched into that type of paper that has a waxy coating you scrape off - not sure what it is called, gives the letters a very dramatic effect though. !COFFEEA

Thank you! It's actually regular paper but I used gel pens to write and draw on it, so it's kinda metallic looking. :)

This is gorgeous and true, Katrina! So much more to a kiss. 🤗

I can't see anything else, do anything but melt

Oh, this! Yes! 😉💜

At heart, I'm a doofy romantic. I used to make cards and write poems (never did one to myself though but I think that's a sweet idea), set up picnics and so many more little gestures but as time went by and it was made clear they weren't wanted.. I stopped.

Glad you shared this so that could live again and we could have that feeling from reading it. 💗

Well, thank you so much for reading it and I love the enjoyment you found here. I'm a hopeless romantic, too (obviously), which is probably why I'm always writing romance novels. ;)
