The Last Night of August

Our last kiss didn’t last long;

Your lips met mine for goodbye

But I couldn’t leave it at that

So I pulled your chest to mine

And wouldn’t let my lips leave yours

Or allow myself to breathe

For the sake of sustaining that moment.

But I couldn’t hold you forever

And you itched to go

So I let my stinging lashes rest upon your shoulder

And kissed you for the last time for a long time

And once more for the last time.
