The Kiss

I remember every tiny, minuscule detail. From the freckle behind your ear
to the mole close to your ankle bone. From the dimple on your creamy thigh,
to the delicious hollow behind your knees.

I remember the pounding of your heart as I touched your most intimate
place; A place that I alone now only get to visit; A place that comes alive
for me and only me; One touch, one kiss and you cascade like a waterfall in
my arms, clinging on tight as the waves wash over you, again and again.

And again.

Your breathless sighs as you whisper my given name, makes my heart soar
with the knowledge that you are mine, from now until forever. But when you
gasp the name that is sacred between only you and I,  A name more precious
than anything else that you could give me; Have given me, ~Imzadi~, I know
I have found my reason for being here.

You are my reason.

I remember our last kiss. Oh my God,  I do remember that kiss. As I poured
everything I felt down into your sweet mouth, you opened wide and let me
in, totally, both of us clinging on to each other for dear life as the kiss
went on and on, and on. When we broke apart, I don‘t know who trembled more
with the power that surged between us. Neither one of us could let go.

Neither one of us wanted to. From that moment we were forged.

And that was when we knew. That was when we realised that we had to be
together, we had to be one once more.  The days of dancing around with each
other were over. The days of feigned friendship were over too. We were
lovers and we were in love, hopelessly, and we wanted everyone in the
universe to know.

Every single one of them.

I wanted to shout it out aloud that I loved you, but I know it wouldn‘t be
new news to anyone. They had been waiting for as long as we had for this
~thing~ to happen.  Every time we danced together, people waited. Everytime
you brought me back to life from near-death, people waited. Everytime damn
time I looked into your eyes, people waited.

And waited.

But the wait was over, and all it had taken was one earth-shattering kiss.
A kiss that was witnessed by those very people. And all it had taken was
for your lips to touch mine, and that word to be whispered by us both at
the same time, sealing our fate, our future, our hearts.
