laughing, i gasped for breath
we lifted our heads
the space between us floated away
you sighed onto my cheek
and i absorbed it
as the sun
the tension thrust me
back where i sat
but for a second
you lingered
pensively, your eyes caught mine
then you excused yourself
you must go..
errands to run,
it's getting late,
hair to clean,
sleep to be had.
it sure was fun
thanks for lunch..
i'll um.. call me sometime..
your smile is caught,
your eyes captured,
the ransom..
those few inches of silent wind
between a kiss
and a goodbye.
