THE LOVER’S FIRST KISS written & spoken


The lover’s first kiss

There is that moment,

a pause,

that does not trouble time

with demands for days, hours or minutes.

It is when a thousand pieces of jigsaw

fall to earth as a picture whole,

or when a single drop of rain bursts

upon each and every leaf at once,

and when eyes blacken,

the pupils opening wide,

offering mutual surrender, releasing

lips to gently purse and touch.

All around greys to a fade,

and sound holds it’s breath as

senses gather and focus on this one act.

An act that can never be just so again.

That love and passion,

will always express themselves with a kiss

is certain and always here after

remains that knowing,

only this one time can

a kiss feel like this.
