Mr. Hush: The Kiss That Relit The Spark
As the words, “Just shut up and kiss me” left my mouth my eyes were blurred by the speed in which both you and I moved towards one another. It was as if we were held by an invisible rope and those words released us from captivity.
In moments our lips locked and I felt the spark that I missed so much. Savoring the taste, our tongues found each other and danced alongside one another like lost lovers reunited under circumstance.
My body knew yours and yours knew mine.
There was nothing unfamiliar about this moment. Our hands found one another in the mist of pain, love, and lust and held onto one another as our bodies fought for control; while our desires held dominance overall but one thought…I miss you.
In the heat of the moment, I found myself and fought to calm you down as you continued to aggressively kiss me. When you came to, we both hesitated to speak until I said, “I can’t believe this is happening” and you replied that you couldn’t either.
Even now I remember that look upon your face as I sat above you and stared into your beautiful brown eyes, while softly caressing your face.
It had been months since I’d seen you and yet your skin felt so familiar under the touch of mine. Even sitting on top of you, our bodies felt as one and I couldn’t help but feel as though you were mine again.
All throughout that night we continued saying “baby” and “babe;” affectionate titles that only we used with one another, especially during intimate moments, which served as a reminder that this was more than a lustful encounter.
As I stared into your eyes and heard the soft whispers of your love echo through my ears, I couldn’t help but feel that you belonged in my arms and no one else’s. Talking to you and enjoying you in this moment, I was mesmerized by the sight of you and scared of what I felt for you.
I didn’t want to give myself to you in this moment and lose you yet again. Even as we made love the next morning, I couldn’t help but wonder what would become of us. We felt so much love for one another and yet, you lived so far away.
Could I handle being in a long distance relationship? Would our love survive such a test? Could I trust you again?
So many thoughts ran through my head, but as you leaned in to kiss me with those soft lips, they were pushed to side and placed in my closet full of dark thoughts and unanswered questions.
This moment, right here, right now was all that mattered and for however short it may be, I knew I was going to cherish it.
