First Kiss


Rain falling on the car-
Pitter-patter-
Hooligans at Houlihans-
First kiss.

Tender - Barely glazed the lips-
More of a peck
Like the birds' kiss
Like the rain saying 'Hello'

Chills rushing up
Our spines at the same time-
Angels twine us together
Like two raindrops crossing paths

But the cool feeling
Of swimming through the air
Wet - without a worry-
Telling each other our story

Wraps us in this present
Moment of perfection-
Drowning in the monsoon
Too soon.

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
