Snowflakes and Fingertips

by Lioness   Jul 9, 2012

If lips were unique like
snowflakes and fingertips,
you could dust mine
to see that they only
belong to you.

    Thank you dear Noura x

    I was thinking when writing this to have it as a longer poem but it actually felt complete to me. Something simple but meaningful. I understand where you are coming from because I too thought to have it longer but I fell in love with it the way it is.

    It felt right

    x mwa!

    I apologise that I haven't commented on your poems lately as properly as I should. It isn't optional for me, I have a reason. Forgive me.

    Anyway, I wanted to say that this is the first time I agree with my sister on anything; that's pure poetry. Honest, simple and full of love. You know, I'm thinking in a selfish way, kinda, here. I am wishing if only you could put this little poem in a whole new poem. Charming lines are better when they're buried in an epic. I don't know though, I feel you intended to keep this short. Told you, I'm being selfish, caring of what satisfies me.

    I never knew that snowflakes are like fingertips have special prints and all. How so? I'm puzzled. I love the simile though, it was tender, if that makes any sense.

    Lovely piece, Liz. I've missed you.

    I don't usually read love poems, but the title was so interesting. Snowflakes are so fragile and elegant. When I think of fingertips in poetry, I think of something soft and fleeting.
    When I read the title, it really pulled me in to read this.

    "If lips were unique like
    snowflakes and fingertips,"

    I love how you started with 'if', it sets the tone of the piece. And this simile is creative; I've never thought of comparing lips to snowflakes/fingertips

    "you could dust mine
    to see that they only
    belong to you."

    I thought 'dust' was well-chosen. It painted a vivid and peaceful image in my head; the snow falling lightly, and a couple kissing under a tree or something :s

    With just a few lines, you've managed to capture something so beautiful and breathtaking. Awesome write, Liz
