His finger traced across the top of my lip
light enough i could feel the air
under it
bottom eyelashes dark lined against hazel eyes
pulling me in with each
and I sigh quiet enough to still make out
his nervous tension
I've never done this
he said
and for an instant I almost knew
he was glad he did

    I love short poems. This one was a slow build up, it felt like a storm approaching knowing that it'll kill you. Then the ending, pow. I'm reeling. Great write.

    ...this is just vague enough (for me) that it allows me to envision several different scenarios, some probably far removed from your intent...
