The last kiss

Of course, as usual

she knew

long

before he

they had kissed

their last

kiss as she

scraped

off the last

spoonful

of

extra creamy

cookies and cream

ice cream

from the bottom

of its half gallon

container.

She reminisced…

about the time

they went to

the

happiest place

on earth…

They walked hand in

hand below

blossomed trees

on mouse

boulevard

(a block and a half

away from goofy street.)

It was to last forever.

‘I like my women

slim and athletic’!

he said.

(Of course, that leaves

out 99.9% of all

women; and I suppose,

most men too)

She remembered

looking back at him

as they walked on

revealing

no small clue to

her true

hidden feelings.

H E

didn’t know

all women

are

n e v e r

happy with

how

their body

looks.

‘Yes, the rose

smells so sweet,

until it turned

so

very

sour’.

He went to

kiss her

once

again,

but this time,

there was

something

missing

he couldn’t

quite

put his finger

on.

she hid it well

like women

do.

The breeze blew

a cold chill,

as she released

her hand from

his…

another

sad

memorandum

of

the last

kiss.

n o w a d a y s,

he thinks

about

her often

when he’s

‘pigging out’

with his

fat friends

at the

local

beer

and

pizza

parlor.
