Paper Thin

There could be this kiss
between us
you and I
would want it to be memorable;
but how to make it so
or predict soft lip outcomes?

I would want the feel of you against me
and you?
I  to
those deep ocean eyes
skinny dipping
you and I
and you?

It is the giving I crave
the willingness
and the lostness in you-

within me
and within you.

Perhaps you would like to feel
the feelings
I'd give,

perhaps the power;
your face against the wall
the shared sense of powerlessness
we'd generate
from these mutual
melting heart-givings.

Step one step closer here
inside my Now.
I'll not move
that would prick the mesmorizing;
I'll not speak
words distract body-talking
is dominant here.

Here we have

the Who is Kissing Who;
I you,
or you I,
or we;
the needing
the breathing
the breathlessness;
the indefinable mix.

  Paper thin
we are
breaths away

now mixing
panting hearts and destinies
and yours.

But thought is the least of it
because your lips
stroke my kiss
I'm lost
inside its reaches
here on paper
this paper thin kiss


Should one kiss

Maybe so.
I then kiss both your lips.
