Then you leaned in, two inches from
my bloodless face;
parted lips caught in a gasp,
and I knew I had to complete the kiss,
or you would never try again.

    Is it me or am I seeing more of these short poems lately? Never the less, a captivating 5 lines, much in the same vein as Melissa would write, chocked full of intrigue and innuendo. Does your lover discern your anxiety, Maybe? Like two dancers not quite in sync, dancing around the uncertainty of the inevitable

    Very sensual, great emotion in this, for a small piece it tells a much bigger tale.
    Every word you have used here earns its place and says as much as a 20 line poem. Great job

    Just like a kiss, one that last a few seconds can just as amazing as one that goes on and on :-)
    and that moment just before a first kiss with someone new....the a wonderful thing and adds to moment untold :-)

    Have you ever watched the movie...While you were Sleeping? This so reminds me of a scene from it...Joe jnr..fancies Lucy and 'leans in' Jack sees it and later tries to demonstrate to Lucy what leaning in's such a romantic movie and full of innocence (ok.. some deception also haha)and so was this verse Jane...I really, really liked it!

    Interesting write Jane. I like how it was simplisticly short and to the point. Nice write. Keep up the great work. :)

    Peace and love, Joe
