That Kiss

September 12, 2008
By Veronica Reyes, Wimauma, FL

I didn’t even know you when you gave me that first kiss.
I felt something but I wasn’t sure if it was love or bliss
But either way it was a little kiss I couldn’t resist.

You kissed me more than once maybe more than twice.
I didn’t know what I was thinking you had your girl
I was still in search of the love of my life.

But what can I say most teenage boys are the same.
When we kissed both our eyes were closed
But the sad thing was that you weren’t my man
So I had to leave you to be.

You may be running your mouth saying nothing but lies telling everyone it was all me
But the truth is I kissed you and you kissed me.

But I don’t care what you think and I don’t care what you say
But you do have me thinking about those kisses I received that one day.

It’s not because of you I think about those kisses day and night
It’s just that you had me satisfied and you kissed me just right.

These past few days I’ve been thinking of that blissful day,
And I’ll do anything to get another kiss from you or shall I say
“I’m sorry I should’ve known that messing with a boy like you would bring me nothing but trouble and pain
And now I often think of your kisses and I’m going insane.

But your kisses belong to your girl and you aren’t the one to blame
And I know you aren’t my man but I think I fell in love with you and that’s a shame.”

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem because it actually happened to me this boy stole my kisses and i fell in love with him its sad to know that he aint mine but i'll be patient and i'll wait because true love is slow and very sweet.

What a fantastic poem with real feelings and emotions - I love the symbolism of the line "When we kissed both our eyes were closed". Great writing!

Good job Veronica! It's good to reflect on the trials in our lives and understand why things happen. I think you've captured it perfectly.
