Even though this was written for a contest it still seemed to coem from your heart. You captured the nerves that come with a first date and the smiles and the kiss that come with it too. I loved how you kept the poem light and positive. I guess the length really helped with that.
You captured the essence of those moments right before a first date perfectly! Nerves are going crazy, pacing back and forth looking at the time, etc... it's really nerve racking! But sometimes, it's so worth it when you finally meet and have a great night like in the poem...a nice walk on the beach and a kiss to last... very beautiful! :)
