Ain't nothin' Like it

by Shannon McEwen

Squishy hugs with chubby arms
Long fingers clasped

Around dark strands of hair
Cherub face pressed
Against a weary shoulder

Before rising
Puckered lips
Encircling sticky cheeks

Nine and one half smooches
Before my heart

Like chocolate
When lips part
“la u”

this poem tells it like it is, and that is, that there ain't nothing like it, all the little things you describe here so tenderly.
