THE KISS (a poem for my husband)


temp-post-image

I still remember the feeling I felt


When we first kissed…


I remember the spot my feet pressed into on the stairs


How the light held its softness


In the space around us…


So still


Was everything but my heart.


I remember the way your shoulders turned


As you leaned into me


The tilt of your face


And the scruff of your cheek


And your incredible smell…


You smiled as our lips met


And you pressed into me


All iron and ocean


At once indestructible and immoveable


and yet caressing, fluid and all encompassing


You wooed me with the promises you made me with your eyes…


Your kiss filled me with hope


the swell of your presence overwhelmed me


The power of your arms immured me


I felt you were invincible


and


all


mine.


Your kiss caressed my history


And erased it…


I was safe…


And in love.
