The Kiss That's No More - Poem by Julian Escamilla

The kiss that was; is no more.
The one with our eyes closed
When our lips touched for the first time.
Our hearts beating faster
And our breath taken aback
With a single touch.
As we come up for air
From that kiss, that's no more.
I recall your look of bliss
As tears slowly
Rolled down your cheeks.
As you gazed in my eyes
The palms of your hands touch my face
As your fingers
Slowly rub across my cheeks.
Moving my head forward to kiss again
I remember brushing
Your hair gently
with my fingers
And whispering
'I love you, Mi Amor'
Memories of that kiss
Has slowly faded
But isn't forgotten.
It's all that's left
From the kiss, that's no more

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem when I kissed the love of my life for the first time. I remember her touching my face and closing her eyes when we kissed for the first time. I remember every detail of that kiss. I think that's what made me fall in love with her. Even though were not together anymore, I still remember the kiss. And my hope is that she will too and eventually return to my heat again.
