Women remember the first kiss, men remember the last. – Anonymous

Holding back, don’t want to rush
Take a breath, no need for a fuss
Gravity, doing its job
Pulling us together, our walls come undone

A pause, he’s making sure
Timid smile, we’re alone in this world
Hesitation, we’re both new at this
Anticipation, a moment we don’t want to miss

The kiss sends me spinning
My head starts reeling
My heart starts pounding
As my body starts shivering
Sparks start flying
Fireworks exploding
Time stops ticking
Eternity is growing
In a kiss
In the kiss

Pulling back, to catch some oxygen
No doubt we’ll do it again
Nervous, don’t want things to change
At least not in a bad way

Another moment, breathe back again
Lean in to kiss me again
Comets dance across the skies
Sighing, I close my eyes

The kiss sends me spinning
My head starts reeling
My heart starts pounding
As my body starts shivering
Sparks start flying
Fireworks exploding
Time stops ticking
Eternity is growing
In a kiss
In the kiss

Fireworks exploding
Everything changing
Heart racing
Eternity growing
In a kiss

I hope that my first kiss is like this...it sounds so magical. It'll be awkward and timid, like you said, but a memory I'll never forget. Keep writing, you're doing great!

Thanks guys! Love the positive feedback. But just for the record, this was 100% pure imagination. It was actually a spinoff of a song called "The Kiss" by Karmina... you should check it out. So I haven't had my fireworks exploding moment yet.

Cheers!
