It was only a kiss
What a silly phrase only a kiss. That is like saying it is only a breath. Without it life ceases to exist.
And when you don’t have one it can become an overwhelming need…for air. Or affection. Both essential, both life giving, both needed and desired.
And that first kiss with her took my breath away like no other in decades. It may only have been a kiss but in reality it was so much more.
