i didn’t think a kiss was such a big deal.

it’s just skin against skin. no different from holding hands

or hugging

or touching.

so why is it that when two people’s lips press

against eachother

it changes everything?

even if you don’t

intend to, it makes you crave that person

like cigarettes.

it never means nothing.

it makes you addicted to them.

it makes you want to just be near them all the time

laying in their lap

cuddling

holding their hand

inhaling their scent.

the kiss itself relieves tension

but in the long run

makes everything

worse.

and you realize when it’s too late

that they’ve become your nicotine

and their kisses have you

hooked.
