First Kiss This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
TV blaring on,
we sit on the couch,
bodies stiff,
Nervous.
Oblivious to the voices
"Oh, John, I love you so!"
It spoke, a soap opera.
His hand grasped mine,
the other a remote.
Click, said the TV
Hello, said his eyes,
as they penetrated mine
pupils dilated
Man, I like him so much,
Whoosh, heat rushed to my face,
Bright red, ears warm.
Smile,
God, I'm hot. (hands caress my cheekbones)
He smiles
Eyes close, waiting, waiting
come on, I can't take it.
Lips touch
Softly.
First Kiss.

Great emotion. You described it so well! So hard to put into words, but you did it. Perfect, just like the first kiss. :) Would you read my poem titled the Magic of Love? I would love your take on it.
