It was only a kiss…
It was only a kiss, as the song said.
It was on my cheek at that, nothing sensual, sexual or lurid.
Yet it shocked me.
It was unexpected,
Innocent and filled with joy.
My heart jumped, pulse raced and just perhaps
It was all so unexpected that I suddenly felt young again.
And maybe somewhere deep down,
Hidden and unacknowledged
I had wondered what it would be like to have her kiss me.
But it was only a kiss.
There will never be another like that one.
Yet I will savor it.
