Sarah's prompt: "first kiss"


She’d been imagining it for months …
maybe longer
soft,
tender,
sweet,
hot,
fierce,
passionate,
aching,
longing,
fulfilling,
completing,
utterly satisfying.

She’d resisted it for weeks …
maybe less
Longing glances,
hesitant touches,
weighted moments

He’d imagined it for months…
maybe longer
hoping,
wishing,
knowing

He’d waited on her for weeks…
maybe less
studying
listening
watching

Time passing,
day and night,
wind and rain.
Time together,
conversations dropping into nothingness,
expectant with what was to come.
The sun playing in her hair,
the light sparkling in his eyes.
Gentle touches at the door,
on the couch,
as they walked,
Fingers grazing as she handed him a glass,
as he handed her a book.

In her bed she imagined and whispered it to be so.
As he drove, eyes half shut against the day, he thought it into being.
Finally, beating sun, thundering surf, sandy beach, insistent touch.

first kiss
