First Kiss

Sidelong glance
dazzled
heat sizzles in the air
from the moment that I saw you
from the moment you first smiled
I felt my heart
thaw
expand within my chest.
No expectations
asked me for a walk
raised eyebrow
so old fashioned
such charm.
Stroll through the garden park
sweet song of evening birds
scent of freshly mowed grass
my eyes linger upon your lips
even as the melody of your voice
caresses my bare skin.
Take my hand
thumb caresses my palm
I giggle
shy
hair falling to hide my face
I quake
with desire
with fear
I want to be free
I want to open myself to ye
hold back
I am unable to let you in
I will not let you see.
You tip my head back
fingers caress my throat
along the curve of my cheek
your fingers curling in my hair.
I glance at your lips
licking mine
looking up at you
you come closer to me
your breath warm on my face.
My breath
short gasps
your mouth covers mine
I groan.
Soft
tongue tapping
message of desire
fireworks explode
within the twilight.
