A Kiss

She hurried on slowly
Behind my footsteps
Now smiling
Now anxious
She hurried on
Into the dark tunnel

I sensed her presence
Her charm, pervading
I steeled myself, longing
Sensing her beauty
I trudged on
Defying the senses

My memory 
Clogged thus with defiance
My weary feet
Tethered to my race
My thought- sullied
I tripped and fell

She, beside me, whispered
‘I’m sorry about that, pretty face!’
‘I love you,’ I blubbered.
‘Welcome to my lips.’

That innocence
That was my virtue
Now seemed incongruous

That flicker sent ripples
Of jollity, soothing:
The magic of chance kisses!

    You got some nice image sentences in this poem. I like the sentence...SHE HURRIED ON SLOWLY. FAST YET NOT WANTING TO CATCH YOU, HURRIED SLOWLY. ... MY WEARY FEET TETHERED TO MY RACE...I like that sentence. Good lines! Robert Henry Poulin
