The story of her lips

Sometimes her lips tasted sweet
Like the lollipop she had pulled out moments before

Or salty
Like the nuts she had been nibbling on...

Caffeine
Sleepless nights and bleary eyes...

Or wet
A detox diet...

Brandy and chocolate
A bitchy sleepover with the girls...

Cookies and cream
crying, screaming down the phone...

oranges
Another detox diet...

And i waited for the chapped, dry lips
That had seen no food or drink
Unmoisturised lips that delivered a small kiss...

A small soft kiss that said
I know
You did it before
You will do it again
But i forgive you.
