Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Counting kisses shamelessly. Petal by petal.

by Amapola on February 20, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Originally written in Spanish. This is a rough translation.

Petal by petal.

Like incandescent carmine
your flower cravings sprout
in my timid lips.
Trembling, impatient lips,
which, at the warm touch of yours,
without hesitation,
suddenly unfold,
undressing almost shamelessly
at the sweet and mellow pace
of this long kiss that always awaits you
night after night,
petal by petal.
