Singularity-The World's Best Kiss

Updated on August 24, 2011

You touched my cheek and folded into me

I looked into eyes that smiled into my soul

Your arms encircled me, drawing me close

My lips touched yours and the taste of you flowed into me

An underground spring

Filling my senses

Electric softness

Primal connection

Visceral Eden

Two melting to one

The long, intoxicating drink

The taking and giving

Warm fusion

Mass and energy

Breathing life

Out of consciousness

Out of breath

Changing time

Bending space

I held you like my own heart

Your touch on my skin

Your breath in my mouth

More real than my mind

More a part of me than my pulse

Than my dreams

Time slowed and reality ebbed out into the street

Draining out to the ocean

Our colors blending

Complimentary

Primary

We pulled back and the smile in your eyes echoed back from mine

The Garden of Eden in short streets

The cradle of existence as

Two singularities

Drawn by an invisible force

Become one

The universe folding into itself as you gaze at me

As my hand brushes a curl from your cheek

When Love Loves You Back

those days I didn't think all feeling and carousels and rainbows I think a lot now that love is broken in like new jeans or shoes filling the background the lights of our stage comfortable blues, but...


Rapunzel's Gold, Jack's Seeds and The Prince's Flower

It was the half life between waiting and goodbye I met you there You seemed immune to it But inside, I knew you were there too I gave you my name and you gave me yours I told you...

      You'll think it's stupid, but this is one of my favorite kissing scenes. :)

      best kiss in the world

      See how she leans her cheek upon her hand.

      Oh, that I were a glove upon that hand

      That I might touch that cheek!

      I think we who love build up a kind of longing that to be even a glove on her cheek or a drink with her eyes intoxicates, but when that perfect, lingering electric softness finds its desire in her lips....you said it...perfect. We might say it today: Oh, that I were the x or the o under those hands. That I might feel the kiss of her fingertips!

      Thank you for the visit, I'm glad you chose this one. =:)

      Electric softness is my favorite line. It's perfect. I can totally feel that. That buzz hum that electricity gives when it's the perfect strength; not so tiny it shocks, but not so big that it zaps hard, just perfect, lingering.

      The answer to your last question IYAH, is absolutely.

      Thank you for your heartfelt comment and although I share your feelings about this poem sometimes, it was not written for regret, but celebration of the capacity of our hearts to love. Starting to think the past has more power than the future is like hardening of the arteries. Just don't. Nothing is more compelling than the heart in love--and it is ageless, timeless and destiny always has room for a singularity.

      Love loses it's awesome creative and synapse shattering capacity only when we let it. Your pen name tells me that's not about to happen with you. As writers, we can share such an experience just by reading each other--remember Elizabeth and Robert Browning. =:)

      Really... i should not read your hubs so late at night opening my soul to the memories and the longing for a love like that again. All of the emotions your words invoke become overwhelming this late at night. You touch each heart that reads your powerful words and we wonder what if we hadn't let that love go... and will it ever come again???

      Oh! how I remember. The singularity. How could I have forgotten? The tragedy of the split singularity. And now lost. Just a faint taste remaining. What a memory and ache you have awakened. i'm not sure I can say thank you. Later, maybe when the emotion receeds to a level I can live with again. This is why old men cry.

      Thank you Billy, there is so much restraint in love, it's nice to recall the times when there isn't.

      I was in a music store and a girl came over and asked if she could help me. I said "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" and she said "You too?" =:)

      just read this one... I liked its pace and intensity - i could really feel the passion, sensuality and the yearning to be one with another in that thing. Don't think I've read any of your other poems. This one was a gem.

      Cris, lol I often catch myself thinking all of us are experiencing life in the same way when we are vastly different in time shifts and cultures and tastes and experiences...still, our creative expressions strike a familiar chord, which each of us "...steps to the music he hears however measured and far away."
