First Kiss Poem by Jeremy Horsford

First Kiss

Rating: 4.7


Last night I fell asleep eager, longing to
meet you again in the morning. I awoke to
birds chirping and leaves of the trees
rustling in the wind.

You were still asleep. I watched you for a
moment, hoping your eyes would open, so we
could meet.

I watched on whilst my heart was pounding,
sinking, thinking... You are my clarity,
my life, my hopes, my fears, my infinity.

Before you arrived I was carefree and happy
and now...your interference has left the
water muddied.

Are you real?

That moment has left me and nothingness
hasn't come to be.

Maybe you are mine and maybe we'll be plural
over time.

You turn towards me, but still asleep, I weep.

I want you.

Shall I steal a kiss?

You paint a very intimate picture, and the ending is brilliant but I love the uniqueness of this line...Maybe you are mine and maybe we'll be plural over time a great play of words :)
