She asked and happily answered,
both equally in the same breath,
almost as if,
she wanted a perfect kiss to lips.
Of course I obliged
by offering up my mouth,
close enough to simply do as she wished.
The girl spun around in return
and what started out slowly at first
quickly enveloped into something else.
Hands were full of ideas
and there we were,
for the first real time
out in the public eye.
With her eyes under mine
expecting more than this kiss
she pushed our cordial innocence
up over the edge.
From this moment forward,
understand that nothing comes easy.
She inched even closer still,
I could feel her breathing
beginning to intensify.
Her voice was mixed with secret intentions
she played with something
a little more private
squarely in front of others
I have to admit,
this balancing act was exciting.
Afterwards, I stood their staring
was this wisest choice after all?
It was too late to question or answer
both of us had already fallen
we could only lay there
wounded on the field
love and all of its pitfalls
had clearly won.
