Kisses Missed

There were many kisses
So many kisses I missed
While walking blind
Down dead end paths
Following mirages of futures
That never arrived
Passing doors of possibility
Oblivious
Heedless of the sweet lights
Glowing inside
Which hindsight revealed
Far, far too late
Looking backwards with a pang
Of lost opportunity

How many unseen doors
How many pathways lie hidden
Blurred by the present
And the chase of foggy futures
How many more kisses am I adding
Every year
To that list
Of kisses missed?

  1. a kiss missed is a sad thought man…but so true it is a product of our choices….and sometimes that is a painful realization…its part of the reason i got off the road so much…

  2. “While walking blind
    Down dead end paths
    Following mirages of futures
    That never arrived
    Passing doors of possibility
    Oblivious
    Heedless of the sweet lights
    Glowing inside” This is my favorite part of your lip-starved poem,
    Sounds like you need to go to some large event and do a survey on “Kisses Missed”
    I know if you went to a Rainbow Gathering you could set a record !!!
