The First Kiss

Two bodies lean together Lips meet, cautious peck A moment passes Mouths open Tongues dance Lips move No push No shove No dominant No submissive Two souls sharing

The clock stops ticking The music fades away The universe stretches to infinity Beginning at the point of contact No urgency … No clawing … No pawing…

A gentle sweet hug Two lovers, in a moment Barriers down Hearts open Souls exposed

Yet, testing Being sure A break, a pause Eyes open Searching … Wondering…

A stroke on an arm A caress of a face Eyes locked

Beginning to close Two bodies lean together Lips meet
