When you kissed me everything stopped for a moment, a millisecond it was like the breath from your body and the breath from my body just stalled between the spaces of our faces like they have been waiting there whole lives to embrace.
When you kissed me the heart exterior of my wall fell down brick by brick, touch by touch. The safety I had encased myself in from hands and palms that were to calloused to rub across my not so smooth edges. ” Hands ” that only hurt me so I locked them out, but then you, you caressed yourself print across the nape of my very being, grabbing hold of the little fear that I have and soothed the ache of a thousand sandpaper kisses left before you.
When you kissed me I died, happily and at peace. I longed for that breath you suck from my body to create a home inside of yours and reside there eternally so that the life you stole in me would sit heavy in your lungs so every moment you were away from me I was still alive in you. Each inhale a reminder, each exhale a death sentence because each time you pushed me out, that little fear in me thrived while the hope in me died but I swear when you kissed me all the stars in the sky decided to shine at one moment perfectly aligned.
When you kissed me with your nose pressed into the nooks of my face your lips not quite on my lips but our heartbeats running the same marathons going on in our bodies I could feel you.
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
When you kissed me I never knew how hard it would be to let your lips leave my lips without ever saying goodbye and though you’ve gone I will always remember that time when you kissed me.
