Tentative, Love's First Kiss

Rating: 5.0
Waited so long for this
Tentative, Love's First Kiss
I've rehearsed it in my mind
Played it through 1,000 times
Don't want to rush the enjoyment
Want to savour every moment
Slow-motion, feeling everything
I feel my heart take wing
Are you feeling what I feel?
Is this just a dream, or real?
Soft lips gently touching mine

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I was remembering my fiance's and my first highly-anticipated kiss. We were both out of practice and a little rusty, so we approached it slowly and with great care and respect. The result was mutually worth the wait. Sadly, he died before we could marry. The one great soul-mate of my life!

Thank you for reading and commenting, Khairul. Anyone who's ever truly been mutually in love, will most likely be able to relate to this poem. Especially if they'd waited awhile, and there was deep love and commitment there. But if you kiss every Tom, Dick, and Harry that comes along, it means nothing.

Great poem. A first kiss can be very nice.

Thanks, Lamar! Funny thing that this one is a bit heady for me, yet I'm the one who wrote it! Compared to some of what I've seen on this site, though, my poems are pretty tame. I choose to keep them that way! :)

Your first kiss is very special and the memory lingers on. Good use of a question: ' Are you feeling what I feel? ' I'm sure the answer is 'Yes'.

Michael, your last sentence made me blush, but of course you can't see that, because this is internet! I often forget that men are going to read these poems, too! Thank you for the sweet comment. My central air conditioning just malfunctioned, and they just installed a window unit to hold me over until they can figure out what's wrong with the central air. I'm reading comments while I wait for the air to kick in, and trying to get a feel for how the window unit is working. I live on the 3rd floor, and heat rises!
