.....and we held our breath

.....and we held our breath

A Poem by Loribeth215





….and we held our breath


for a time, it seemed

that was the coldest of nights

it was sweet

your hands held mine

and between us

a shiver, a thrill, a fear,

the night chill was warmed between us

our words made clouds of the frozen air

so you bent near, and I felt

the warmth of your soul

how it skipped and dived to meet my skin

and knowing, all before had brought us to this

that pause just before your lips met mine

to kiss

with a whisper, a quiver...this torture of bliss

and we held our breath.

this torture of bliss... love that. Can be so true in describing the desire of love. This was so gentle like a whisper from the heart.

our words made clouds of the frozen air

This possesses passion and sweetness ... and it is rhythmically very pleasing.

I enjoyed reading this, on a few levels. I remember that first kiss, well - some of them - not all of them. No, I am not a s**t - lol, I just have a habit of falling for the wrong person time and time again. Still, there is no denying that magic of that first kiss - that cannot be rushed - and how in that moment, times stops and you hold your breath.

The main part that I enjoyed though, was this being set in the cold. There is no mistaking the warmth of love when you are set in the cold... it is beautiful.

*sigh* I've felt this before...such a beautiful moment. This reminds me of the passion and rapture of young love...holding hands and kissing for the first time. The "cold" aspect added a nice juxtaposition to the warmth of passion and the bliss of falling in love. Nicely written!
