The memory of our first kiss
Fading away
with each passing day.

Such bittersweet times when you were mine
living a tempestuous life, sublime.

Forbidden pleasures in your arms
the taste of port wine on succulent lips
a daring gauntlet thrown when we kissed
as passionate war raged in tainted bed.
Nothing restrained the ache of bliss

with each passing day

fading away

the memory of our first kiss.

  2. Linda, this piece connects with me in a very sad but deep way. As memories of a first kisses fade, as memories of a unrestrained bliss fade, I am moved by your words and how they connect with me. – Stephen
