KISS by Ryan McGinley © 2008

I awoke from a kiss

A kiss that was so so unbelievably sensual and real

It was like being kissed in my sleep by an angel

It was the kind of tentative, sensitive touching of lip to lip skin

Where hundreds of highly sensitised nerve endings

Become ones entire focus of attention

When two people bonded by the sensuality of a tingling, lingering kiss

Start to become one person

And even though I am aware that I am dreaming

Even marvelling in disbelief

The power of the kiss is all consuming, pulls me back in

To an experience that is so unbelievably real

To the extent that I can even feel the seal

Between our lips parting

From left to right, leaving a slight, tingle

On the outer edge of my upper lip that is still there upon waking

Along with the sensation of precious anticipation

That accompanies new unknown territory

Of risking the unveiling of ones true feelings

Acting on the passion of mutual attraction

Crossing over that fine line

Between friendship and sexual tension

Where one suddenly risks everything

To become lovers by design
