in that moment

my breath escaped my body

and i was no longer there

drifting instead, surrounded by space

still feeling your lips on mine

the beating of my heart falling

into the rhythm of yours

seconds felt like hours, years, millenia


then we inhaled

your breath pulling me

back into my trembling body

my eyes opened, i looked at you

and remembered …

… and i won’t forget again

the kiss, the moment, and you
