Musings On The Taste Of Caramel And Honey (For B..) - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

I have been imagining it

when I close my eyes and try to conjure you in front of me

there is a moment when two people are on the verge of kissing for the first time

both believe that the other will respond

but there is a split second of uncertainty

of hesitation

when the final decision has to be taken by both people

that whatever the risk

the kiss has to be had

and in that instant

the heart is as open as it can get

the universe in its entirety flows through it

and time stops

for a split second

before that kiss

that's what I'm imagining

when I imagine your taste.
