My first kiss

It was in that teenage moment,

somewhere between desire

and doubt that you can

actually do it first time right.


It is a rite to being a sexual being,

albeit one confused and unsure,

trying to be tender, with an awkward 

smile, and fumbling instead.


And then it happened—lips on 

lips—held for a moment, but 

not too long, and then the giggle

that follows, for it is done!
