"Good things come to those that wait."



A night full of smiles.
Questioning eyes.
Quick glances.
I'm shy.
I can't look at you without getting weak in the knees.
Grasping onto my hand.
Running your fingers slowly across my palm.
Deep conversations about nothing.
Making me giggle.
Being so completely comfortable after a few drinks.
Poking your belly.
My leg touching yours as we sat next to each other on the couch.
We're at the peak of our innocence and something's bound to happen.
I tell you I have no talent.
You share a story.
I share my praise.
Sharing a drink.
Lingering over the thought that your lips touched my straw.
Would those lips meet mine anytime soon?


The songs played on.
I wanted nothing more than to imitate a feline.
Pounce on my prey.
Devour it whole.
You gave me:
A kiss on the hand.
A kiss on the forehead.
A kiss on the cheek.
Nothing would suffice.
Staring into your eyes and seeing the way you look at me.
Like I'm something amazing.
"Kiss me you fool" would have been innapropriate for the moment.

You're in my bed.
I feel your hand gently grace across my thigh.
Along with goosebumps comes a rush.
A warm feeling that started in my belly and went straight to my heart.
If there's a Cupid, he shot his arrow.
I can't see you and it's a shame because you're beautiful.
What time was it? Almost morning. Still dark? Good.
I want to be cheesy.
I want to tell you that I adore you.
I want to tell you that I've wanted you.
I want to tell you that my heart's beating a mile a minute as you crawled under the covers with me.
We speak a few words.
In between phrases, I hear the pounding in my chest.
I feel your breath on my chest.
Soft whispering.
You get closer, as if you already weren't close enough.
You lightly kiss my forehead and the word "Goodnight" escapes from your lips.
As if I'm going to capture those words, I lean in and my lips touch yours.
We hold still for a moment.
Millions of exquisite poems could have been written in that split second.
Our lips part and then join again.
You reach your hand up to join my cheek.
I rest my hand on your side.
Your delicate touch meets my hair and you softly tuck a piece behind my ear.
You whisper into my ear,

"Good things come to those that wait."

I waited.
I found those good things.
And I'm left with a warm feeling in my belly.
It goes straight to my heart.
A heart filled with dreams, passion and wants.
I want one thing.


Kiss me again.
Quite possibly the most beautiful first kiss I've ever had

I don't know what to say, except: I love it! :D

My favorite part:
