This Kiss - Poem by Michael J. Burt

this kiss wasn’t just a kiss
this kiss was the demise of eternal bliss
this kiss wasn’t just a second of meaningless feelings
this kiss was the end of priceless beginnings
this kiss wasn’t just a thing you had to do
this kiss was the duration of me and you
this kiss…this kiss…this kiss
