Our First Kiss


Settle down next to me
but don't settle for me
unless you think it's right.


You held me close to you,
wrapped your arms around me
protecting me like a cocoon.


We lied together cuddling
my back against your chest,
breathes exchanged in harmony.


Until your heartbeat quickened,
you turned my body towards you
and pinned me into the sofa corner.


You kissed me like you meant it,
ran your hands along jawbone,
fingers in my tussled hair.


It's only our first kiss but it feels
like the beginning of something,
like we're falling in love.
