After a year, still kissy kissy

by sisterpoet on November 15, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

After one year in this relationship, I found myslef back in the same restaurant where we had our first date. Nothing changed in the kissy, kissy department. Somehow however. It feels better. I know him, he knows me ...as best as one can in a year. I can hear the naysayers " talk to me in 5 years" . Well, tonight we discussed where we were going, and if wasn't the movies. I believe in my heart that I will still welcome his carress on my hand and his kiss on my forehead 5 years from now.
