FIRST KISS

Written by: Tanya Jenkins

Room dimly lit
Clutter and dust
97.1FM newest Jam
Faintly heard
In the background
Along with
Humming sounds
Chanting from the computer
Squeaky chairs
Paper shifting
Telephone ringing
In adjoined office
Shared with my co-worker
Avoiding intrusion
We talk in a whisper
Looking in each others
Eyes
Sexual Tension
Energy
Bouncing off of us
Heartbeats in sync
Teenager’s first crush
We both
Relive
Intensively watching every
Syllable
Out of your mouth
Thick juicy
Lips
Imagining me
Kissing
Licking
Sitting on
THEM
Then you
Kissed me
And it
HAPPENED
The release of my
Sweet, Sweet
LOVE
I thought it
Left me
But you
Helped
Rekindle it
With our first kiss
THANK YOU
