Prelude to a Kiss

¡Hola! Everybody…
Sometimes Saturdays are for the arts, here at the [un]Commonsense Blog…

-=[ Prelude to a Kiss ]=-

Closing my eyes.
Seeing you.
Picturing your moonlit face,
feeling that softness.

Lifting my finger to one
impossibly high cheekbone
tracing its outline against a
grain of light
a silvery powder.

Bringing my face to yours.
Our mouths aligning,
but not yet kissing.

Somehow staving off
the gnawing hunger.

Our lips grazing, adjusting,
making the slightest calibrations
of angle and shape,
as if we were whispering
into each others breath.

Both of us straining
against an uncrontrolled desire
in order to create our first kiss.

A kiss I know I have been waiting
for even longer than my tired eyes
could tell you.

To make it
as close
to perfect
