A Kiss

A Kiss

Lips move in,

Slight hesitation

A look, a breath,

Twinkle in the eye,

Easy smile,

A burning inside

A flutter of the heart

Of the eyes

What can you do?

Drawn in….slipping

Feel the crash

Is it right?

Do you care?

Can you know?

Oh well,

Brain too slow,

Heart too fast,

Fingers intertwined

Lips move in

A kiss

So simple

So complicated

But a start

To what?

Something simple, something complicated

Life is wandering slowly

Easily taken

Hope is there

I know

I care

Lips move in

A Kiss

HOPE

HOPE

I look into your eyes

I touch your soul

I find the doors to the walls

Those fortified walls to your heart

I ask nothing of you

I accept what I am given

I am a man

I can see your pain

I want to wash it all away

This brings out your smile

That radiant reflection

Of who you are

This is a confusing world

How to tell you how I feel

I do not know, I am in the dark

Your light is right at the end of my tunnel

Yet it seems so out of reach

I know not what love is

Yet if it is this feeling of helplessness

Of hope for the future

The burning in my chest

The tingling of my fingers

At your touch

You do not know

And maybe that is best

For to let you know

Is to let you in

And that scares me

Scares me beyond belief

No one gets close

No one gets hurt

No hurt, No pain

Just sorrow

These words pound out strong

Like the beating of my heart

And these words are erractic

Also like my heart

My words, My soul

I pour out upon

The pages of time

The tears that flow

Wash my pain

From my face

Buy my insides

Have no tears

To wash them

They burn on

Bright as the sun

This really is not painful

There is so much joy

I am happy

Your smile is my guide

To understand you

That is to be happy

You may never know

I may never tell

But you my lady

Are Special
