A Simple Kiss

Thu, 06/04/2020 - 15:03 -- breeee

One tiny peck of the lips.

It’s one little tiny kiss.

It’s so simple.

It’s so easy.


No, it is not.

Movie screens lie.

It is not easy. 

Your palms are sweating.

Your hearts are pounding.

Your eyes are staring.

Your brains are thinking.

Movie screens don’t tell you

That it takes courage,

That it takes guts,

To move that 5 inches closer

To close your eyes.

To pray the moment won’t be ruined.

To trust you won’t get hurt.

To hope it will last.
