  • There's something otherworldly about the moment when a woman lets you kiss her. The way the clear divide between your minds and bodies evaporates in a moist, affectionate instant. As the man if you don't kiss her she wouldn't dream of being the aggressor. Then, as if by magic, her hands come to life on your shoulders and neck. You relax as your eyes go from being forcibly closed to being shut so that all you can feel is the softness of lips.

    The closer you get to someone's face the more beautiful they are. In that moment she seemingly transforms and her desire for you is unleashed. There is no doubt that behind those calm green eyes there was fire. All along.

    "I would love to stay here all night, but I have work in the morning," you say with a genuine smile. Your breaths mingle as you both try and compose yourself before parting ways. A few more delicate kisses help obscure everything else that is wrong in the world, your life, with her, with you.

    The drive home is bittersweet--yet, more sweet than bitter--you wish you could live in that first kiss moment forever. That you didn't ever have to make the drive home. That everywhere you were you would be home. If only you could kiss away the clear divide between you and everything else in your life. Perhaps you are still trying to close that gap.
