My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

August 6, 2010

“first kiss”

heartbeat syncopation
eyes met
a deep breath
controlled exhale
through pursed lips
only to calm
sweating palm
eyes still locked
stepping closer
pulled by heart strings
driven by desire
time standing still
future flashes forward
hers for the taking
soul mates making
his for the taking
foundations quaking
being reborn
all else forsaking
insides churning
fires burning
two lives turning
melting into one
moving in a dream
closer to reality
electrified mind
wants to scream
but the words
must wait
this moment is fate
the flowing stream
on the cheeks
are the tears
for the years
of waiting
for what’s next
the soft brush
of ecstasy
the taste
of lips
his and hers
the pressure
the wetness
the knowing
for each
with no doubt
it’s the last
first kiss.

    • Ms. van der Linde, thank you for your comment. I tried to write this as I thought the “Lucky Girl” and I would experience it…she and I have one coming, a last first kiss. I just hope she’s ready for it ;), it’s gonna be a doozy!

  5. Oh yes, there can only ever be a last first kiss. Such a shame for that is often the most thrilling one, no?

    • Thanks for stopping by, Tony, and for the nice comment. I’m looking forward to my last first kiss. Strange thing is, though, I won’t really know it was until I have my last last kiss…I hope there are lots and lots of regular ones in between πŸ™‚

  6. That was excellent. Very romantic, and steamy! And Tony is right. That kiss is often never equaled. But I bet she wishes he’d shaved first. πŸ˜‰

  10. what a hot post…
    it is winter in your place, isn’t it?
    that’s why you need some steamy stuff to warm up, right?

    • Thanks for reading Jingle, and for your time to comment. It’s high summer here in Tennessee…maybe that’s why the poem is steamy πŸ™‚
      YOU ROCK!
