Thank you for the kiss — a momentary distraction.
You bought a glow to my cheeks,
brushing my lips with yours — they felt so soft.
You stood a giant amongst the crowd, your words spoke out loud.
Your smile shone like a beacon and radiated for miles.
Spoke with such a soothing voice; you consoled my chastened heart.
Amongst the dinge of the nightclub, you bought forth a haven of tranquilly.
Sat next to you, fleeting glances into your crystal blue eyes, I momentarily drift into the subconscious: to fall into a mountain spring in the middle of winter,
to cleanse me, to feel my heartbeat, numb to all outside.
Saw you standing tall, occupying the space with such grace.
Your every movement a distraction.
Sculpting my desires.
Awakening my imagination.
The eagle takes flight upon seeing a new dawn.
Rewriting my memory.
The kiss calmed the hiss that teased my heart to distraction.
You brought forth a warm glow that consumed me — the cool pillow, the gentle breeze.
Expecting the lion to bite instead you held me in your arms caged against your chest.
Your face adorned with the most wilful smile.
The kiss — thank you for allowing me to take a sip from the cup of humility.
As feathers fall, so my dreams took flight with you last night.
Thank you for your smile. Thank you for the kiss.
