A Sweet Surrender - Poem by Felicity Slaughter

A kiss.
Just one.
That's all it took
to make me float on air.
It was the lightest
touch, I could barely feel it,
but it was still a sweet surrender.

A kiss.
Just one.
That's all it took for
me to fall apart, to
crumple to pieces, to
melt to a mere puddle in
the grass.

A kiss.
Just one.
That's all it took for
me to shoot up into the sky
like a firework and explode into
a swirl of sparks and all the
colors of a artist's pallette.

You kissed me.
Just once.
That's all it took.
I know you feel it too.
That one kiss made me
fall in love with you.

    The first sweet kiss of a lover. A lovely write. My favorite lines are
    A kiss.
    Just one.
    That's all it took for
    me to shoot up into the sky
    like a firework and explode into
