I’ll never forget our first kiss
I’ll never forget our first kiss
Don’t wait to show her you love her. Tonight walk up to her and pull her close. Look into her eyes but utter not a sound for no words are needed in this moment. Lean in and kiss her but not just any kiss make it a kiss so sensual, so passionate that it leaves her lost in the moment of a kiss like no kiss she has ever experienced. Make it a kiss that reminds her how special she is, how beautiful she is, how sexy she is. Make it a kiss that reminds her that no other woman could ever stir your emotions like she can. Make it a kiss that messes up her lipstick in a way her lipstick has never been messed up before. Make it a kiss that when it is over her body quivers with anticipation of your lips meeting once again. Make it a kiss that without any words uttered says I love you. Don’t just kiss her make it a kiss!
I looked up from my laptop across the living room at her, her head also buried in her laptop. Once again physically we were together in the same room but mentally and emotionally we may as well been on different continents. For too long now we had gone through the motions. Committed more to our work than we were too each other. Chasing professional and monetary success but forgotten in that chase was that feeling we had when all we had was each other. That anticipation of seeing each other’s smile. The warmth of being in each other presence. The safety of being in each other’s embrace and the feel of our lips pressed against each other’s. We had convinced ourselves that our happiness could be found in a number and that through hard work we would achieve that number and have everything we wanted in life. But like I said in our chase for this happiness we forgot about what truly made us happy, we forgot about each other.
So I put down my work and walked across the living room to her. I pushed her laptop aside and before she could speak pulled her close and kissed her like I hadn’t kissed her in years. Every bit of passion I had kept hidden from her over the years. Every time I had wanted to tell her how much I loved her but didn’t because we were too busy all delivered in a single kiss. A single kiss joining two souls that once were inseparable back together again.
She looked at me, a bit confused, and asked where did that come from? But before I could respond she placed her finger on my lips to quiet me and said to me you don’t need to say it your kiss did that just fine and yes I missed us too.
From that day on we never took each other for granted again. We never let work or the pursuit of money come between us again. Sure we still strived for professional success but we made sure to keep that chase in perspective. Now years later when I wake up and see her when I walk in the door and gaze upon her beauty, when she smiles at me for no other reason but to smile at me, no matter what else is going on in our world at that moment my heart skips a beat, I tell her I love her and then I pull her close and kiss her because after all my love for her is the biggest success of my life
There she was right on time, like every night, waiting for the bus the corner of Avenue A and East 10th Street at the edge of Tompkins Square Park. She was EXTRAORDINARY in every way. It wasn’t that she was THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD, although she may very well be, but her attitude, the way she carried herself, the way she moved. U GOT THE LOOK I thought to myself but no matter how good she looked, how sexy she was, I was always careful not to look too hard, LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT U was the last thing I wanted her to see. Damn I wish I wasn’t so SHY, that I had the courage to walk right up to her, look her in the eyes and tell her you are without a doubt one of THE BEAUTIFUL ONES and NOTHING COMPARES 2 U. But that wasn’t me. Then I realized in my daydreaming I had indeed been looking too hard and suddenly she was looking back at me. She smiled and started to walk my way. Somewhat terrified I thought about walking away but I couldn’t move she had me and that walk, oh my that walk, the way she moved there was no denying IT’S ABOUT THAT WALK. She knew it was a walk that would drive any man DELIRIOUS. Hey HOT THING she said, SHE SPOKE 2 ME I thought before I looked around in shock and said are you talking to me? SHHH she said don’t let words ruin this moment. If you TAKE ME WITH U I guarantee you IT’S GONNA BE A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT. She could sense that I was a bit wary, after all this kind of thing doesn’t happen to me. So she said I’m not looking for you to buy me DIAMONDS AND PEARLS because MONEY DON’T matter 2 NIGHT. You don’t have to be FOREVER IN MY LIFE I just WANNA BE YOUR LOVER tonight. Then she leaned in and sealed the deal with a KISS and with that kiss my confidence soared. So feeling like A THEIF IN THE TEMPLE TONIGHT I grabbed her hand and led her away. You know I don’t even know your name. She looked at me and smiled, my friends call me DARLING NIKKI and I just smiled back. Where we were heading that night I wasn’t sure but something told me our walk along ALPHABET STREET would surely lead to EROTIC CITY.
