Kiss my skin—kiss my
hair—kiss my eyes and my lips
like no one else has.

I love the rain. And its silvery liquid touch, pattering softly on my skin.

Thanks. I'm glad you can connect to this poem, although most people would deny ever connecting to such a poem.

Okay, I have to reply to this one. I adore the message that you send to us here (like in most of your poetry) and I find it really amusing and can connect to it in so many ways. Great job! Definitely 5/5 stars from me.

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Finally ;)

“I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way: The eye's a better pupil and more willing than the ear, fine counsel is confusing, but example's always clear.” -Edgar Guest

I like this poem, but your comment elaborating on it is far more beautiful.
