Kiss me again
steal the air from my lungs,
tell me again that you love me.
I want to be closer than close
I want to hold you closer than clothes
I want to wake up with your name on my lips
thoughts of you implanted in my future,
your face etched into my dreams
with those beautiful brown eyes.
There's so many places I want to take you,
kiss me again
let me show you.

I want to know every hue of you
but you're nothing more than an afterthought.

Marcus Roi Medford's picture

My name is Marcus "Roi" Medford, also known as "Mars, the Poet" and I'm a journalist, poet and radio-show host. I've been writing poetry since I was twelve years old and published my first collection of poetry Book of Mars in July 2016. My poetry has also been featured in the poetry anthology Extreme Perception, The Ashvamegh International Journal & Literary Magazine as well as the Scarborough Campus Student Union's zine Xpression Against Oppression. This past winter I finished as a runner-up in The Art Bar's annual Discovery Night and was invited to perform at the Radicalized and Indigenous Students' Experience Summit.
