The Kiss

What bliss there is
in the magic of a kiss.

Lips part
as face approaches awaiting
eager face.

Eyes shine and twinkle
their dare
as minds entwine inside
their circle of unknown

Breathing in the heat of
shared lover’s flame
pulses beat a tempo
of steadily building drums
the closer each one comes.

Savouring with all senses
everything devine
time stands still


All that matters is
the now.

They are creating


Closer, then closer still
the thrill of it is there
they are in
the essence of a kiss.

The eagerness to touch

parted mouths that wait


Yet reluctant to release

they gaze

and still, the moment builds
’til the waiting is too tense
too tempting and, the urge
becomes too strong

Lips meet eager lips
and then

the kiss is won.

The pic is of course, of famous actors Clarke Gable and Vivien Leigh from the movie Gone with the Wind. I think it has to be one of the most romantic movies ever made. Such passion.
