As the boy and the girl approached to the entrance to her home,
she waited with anticipation.
*
He asked, “do you want me to give you a kiss?”
*
Stunt by such a question,
she looked down and blurted, “the moment is gone”
*
She, still waiting for the opportune;
he said, “ok, good bye” and walked away.
*
She turned her keys at the knob,
a little dishearten.
*
What happened there? She questioned herself.
What exactly happened back there?
*
A moment built up so intensely for that instance,
and *poof!* disappeared by a mere question.
*
And that night, they spoke once again;
only this time with such sadness.
*
He had expressed of rejection,
and yet that was not of what she perceived.
*
Perhaps it was an idea that she held on to,
that such a moment need not be asked.
*
Or perhaps it was another idea that she had detained,
that she was only offered a favor she wishfully wanted.
*
Yet clearly by his simple question – he must not have wanted it.
*
So she felt rejected too, small to some certain point.
*
Believing thoroughly that someone would only kiss her out of charity,
and never out of love.
*
Still, did he love her?
*
Why would he when love’s presence is not needed,
to necessitate a kiss?
*
And so she sulked a little throughout the night,
until she saw her errs.
*
And it was not that the moment was gone,
nor was it because he didn’t want to kiss her.
*
It was her perception of that question asked,
that he was unwilling to take responsibility for the action.
*
And what is there responsibility in a kiss,
but an expression of appreciation of one’s affections for another?
*
Yet, it was not him that was unwilling to be responsible,
but she too was unwilling to be fully responsible.
*
As the kiss may mean too much now, especially in the eyes of the beholder
– yet, isn’t a kiss just a kiss? Now just a face of love?
*
So in that honesty they both spoke their piece,
each authentically expressing their truth.
*
And in that space of integrity,
both had come to peace.
*
Peace not with each other,
but peace within themselves.
*
And in that vastness of surrendering,
both had moved closer.

  1. Wow! A kiss can be such a big deal! Yes, it can be when we take life fully as in everything, even in its minutest experience. And in those experiences is the mind recognized, understood and realized. Isn’t it being said that enlightenment can come at any moment unexpectedly. Probably even in a kiss, not to mentioned while sitting on a toilet bowl:)
