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.
