I dreamed about
our first kiss
this morning

how you laughed
when I asked
your permission

how the palms
of your hands
were cool and dry
against my cheeks

how you oh so slightly
parted your lips
and pressed them
lightly to mine

how you pulled back
just an inch
so we could breathe
each other in

an eternity later
I woke
with lungs
still full
of you
