One Kiss

One Kiss

written by: John Drudge

 

When one kiss
Is all that matters
When the warmth
Of skin
And the softness
Of touch
Make time flee
From our embrace
And when the ripples
Of all that we are
Drift across the pond
Of our singular desire
The fading warmth
Of the setting sun
Tucks tenderly into us
Quietly and completely
Without notice
