That Night We Kissed

That night we kissed, my heart became a butterfly.
It sprouted wings and danced across the velvet sky,
then leapt across the multitude of stars there strewn
along its happy way to touch the crescent moon.
You held me close, but did you know my heart could fly?

And in its pounding, did you hear it testify
that you, and you alone, could ever satisfy
the woman that emerged from her secure cocoon
that night we kissed?

It onward soared with constellations yet to try. . .
my yearning heart, once captive, was no longer shy.
How can hearts set free be ever more immune
to sweet caresses in a night that all too soon
must have an end? I couldn't bear to say goodbye
that night we kissed.

For Joe Flach's Contest "First Time"

    You are so romantic. Just a brilliant Rondeau, the form bows to your will. My lips tender and moist would surely steal your heart with but one touch. Kissing is one of the few talents I never shy away from taunting. It is my best hand of cards and I do not hesitate to play it. Again just a brilliant write. Kiss, kiss!
