Kiss - Thursday Think Tank Prompt 13

         Poets United holds a weekly poetry prompt
The Thursday Think Tank
This weeks prompt word is

            K I S S                  

  Tell me you love me, tell me why
tell me how
formulate the words
into one comprehensive statement
so I can file it 
and place it under the label
Loved
then I'll know
but there were no statements
no cleverly crafted words
simply a look
as you wrapped your arms around me
pulling me close 
and for one long and lingering moment
I became a part of you
and you blew all my filing systems away
and told me everything
I would ever need to know
in one single
kiss.

I really liked this, especially...

"formulate the words
into one comprehensive statement
so I can file it
and place it under the label
Loved"

Wonderful, and then...

"you blew all my filing systems away"

You portray the intellect trying to understand love but the heart wiping away any need for words .... it's just beautiful. Nice writing!
