Lingering at the back of my mind was a little thought.
The thought set chills in all my emotions.
I thought I fell so intensely in love with someone.
Like I had no other options
I was gone and done.
But now, the initial sense of love grew remote.
It was obvious, judging by their actions.
I felt like I was all alone
Trying to remove our life’s imperfections
And replace the darkness with sun.
In spite of my generosity
There was no reciprocity.
I reached out one night, pressing for hope.
We had a heart-to-heart.
The uncertainty had to stop.
I was certain though, not to sound like I wanted to part.
So clearly, I stated my mind.
Then they looked at me with a leer.
I cast a fear.
Was it real?
I sat still.
Before I could notice, I got a little kiss.
It was short and simple; I thought it was cute.
For a moment I felt bliss.
Like I was touched by a gentle brute.
I remembered that those where the lips.
The first ones I ever kissed and the only.
As if in a mental eclipse
My mind darkened, slowly.
I looked into their eyes and saw…
I saw something I’d seen before.
It was that undeniable call.
So I pulled in close; very close
And aimed for the lips.
My delicious lips.
The same cold and awesome lips
That always gave me a lisp.
I placed mine against them
And we got lost into our world.
A world of pleasing electrical impulses
The Kiss was deep, and long!
Our mouths danced a waltz.
The feeling was strong.
The taste was milk and malt
Seasoned with cinnamon.
As I was on a natural high
I couldn’t help but moan.
I thought I was a little spry
But, what the hell!
Least I didn’t cry
“This is home”!
“The two of us still conform”.
Inasmuch as there was electricity.
There was reciprocity.
I fell in love all over again.
Was the definition, of romance.
A confirmation: we weren’t the menace.
But lovers with one will:
So, unrehearsed, I uttered the phrase:
I love you!
I got the same phrase.
Only ending in “too”.
It was glory!
The kiss redeemed me.
Redeemed us both.
It was that kiss
That gave me the answer I needed.
After all those times I pleaded
It only took Le Kiss!
When at the back of my mind
There had once been a chilling thought.
The thought which played over and over in rewind.
All it took to put it on halt
Was THE KISS.
The Kiss: a synonym of
The lifeline to our delicate love
My kiss; our kiss
