First Kiss

Updated on August 11, 2017

Do You Remember Your First Kiss?

I remember my first kiss. It was electric and strange. We were rough-housing, wrestling when I ended up in his arms, looking up at his face. Suddenly, the hold became softer, more secure. He looked at me and I looked at him. Seconds passed, neither one of us moving. And it happened. His face came down to mine. My face lifted up to his. It seemed the most natural thing in the world to meet him halfway.

First Kiss
First Kiss | Source

Fingertips whisper down arms

Lips, silk, against cheeks

Shadows candlelit

Slowly, Slowly, Slowly

Languid stretch, reaching

Muscle firm, arms warm

Life sighs, transcendental

Slowly, Slowly, Slowly

Cherry blossoms drift down

on feathers of wind

We are one

Flames dance

Currents flow

We are one

      "This was lovely. If its o.k. with you I'm going to replace my first kiss memories, which was like kissing a dead fish, with yours!"

      I second this thought. Fantastic blend of words to express a moment. Mine was a long time ago, but I still remember it as if it were yesterday. Unfortantely we were very young, and it was mearly a promise of something that would come much later...as in years later, and not with the same girl. What an adventure....youth. If only we had the chance to do it over and again.
