    Love’s first kiss
    Wasn’t a kiss…in the physical sense
    Of lip-to-lip caressing
    The innocence of tongue battles
    Plunging deeply into the realm of
    Forget-me-not fantasies

    No…

    love’s first kiss
    was a romantic whisper
    roaming there and hither
    under cover of darkness
    …just before dawn’s early light

    when the loudness of the quiet
    rang deep into hollow insides
    and womanly pride
    wouldn’t allow her eyes
    to sweep over me

    love’s first kiss
    was the tender touch of affection
    as each section of my heart
    reached out to you

    I have waited many lifetimes
    For your love

    I have savored what you’ve become
    …not what you’ve dreamt of

    I have given everything
    That is your due

    I have risen to the level I need be
    To be with you

    Love’s first kiss
    Was shared many nights before
    Fleshly desires forced us to make love
    In the shallows and depths
    Of our deepest imaginings

    Love’s first kiss was one of illusion
    …utter confusion surrounding me
    I could not see the way of my path
    …could not hear the thunderous beat
    of a lonesome heart

    love’s first kiss
    though I tried to resist
    …tried to wish away the torment
    Of what was to be my destiny
    To persist forward
    As heated flames reached up for me

    Like honey suckles
    Covered with dew and puckled at dawn
    The smell of you lingers on
    As love’s first kiss caresses my heart
    The gentleness of you will never depart
    My memory.

    I was drawn to this... and now I know why.
    It's absolutely, positively, magnificent imagery
    and so very, very sweet.

    She was a lucky girl.... lucky I say!

    Much :heart:
