the kiss of the gypsy








it’s the kiss of the gypsy under the moon
with dreams in the wind oh so perfectly hewn
that captures you swiftly, your eyes close, you swoon
to the promise adrift on the tune

and you float on the splendour of gilded wings
feed on pure lust on long purple ev’nings
lap up the nectar of empty nothings
while your soul dances freely through rings

it’s the kiss of the gypsy under the moon
igniting your senses on diamonds laid strewn
you dance with desires on sugar-laced dune
as to pleasures you now are attune

  25. Oh boy shadow! I could be wrong, but I think I heard that gypsies are very passionate kissers, that when anthropologists studied their culture they came to the conclusion that they had no concept of small pecks. That when they tried tro explain to people of gypsy ways that some people in other parts of the world sometimes give small kisses, the gypsies laughed and thought it was just a joke (they didn't believe it)

    a similar phenomena happened when anthropologists tried to explain to Aborigines that some cultures spanked children as a form of discipline.

    yep, sounds like a tongue kiss for sure!

  34. just got caught up on your last three posts, always invigorating and enjoyable. I must say, at times, I think you are following me around and picking your words from my mind/heart (i know, bodily muscles) but nonetheless, you always manage to hit home.

  35. I believe we all have 'gypsy' in our souls. Some of us are able to let it out more readily than others. Me? Not so much, but there is still time. :)
