A Poem Remembered

All the talk about kissing that I did in yesterday's post, led me to remember this poem. I wrote it almost six years ago. It was inspired by a kiss that was given to me by someone very special. Every now and again I like to remember it, and I smile. I hope you enjoy it.

The Kiss

You are standing in front of me.
You stare into my eyes
I smile at you
My mouth quivering.
We are both stubborn. Both of us want it, yet neither of us will give in.
I cannot wait to feel your mouth on mine.
I cannot wait to feel the warmth of your breath on my face.
Your are just as excited.
I can feel it.

We continue to taunt each other.
Slowly, playfully, flirting for many sunsets and many moons.
You bend down to me,
never taking your eyes away from me.
I return the stare and am caught in your gaze.
I feel light-headed, almost dizzy with delight!

My heart is beating so loudly,
Can you hear it?

Your face is getting closer
closer still...
You kiss my forehead
your mouth moves down to my cheek.

It is then that I start to close my eyes
and let myself get lost in the moment.
I kiss you, moving slowly, gingerly toward your eyes
I nuzzle your nose
tease your mouth
and suddenly,
you touch my face ever so softly
your hands guide me to that place I have longed for so long
Our lips meet hungrily! Exploring one another.

My body is tingling
falling into oblivion.
Our lips dance to the music of the kiss.
