A Kiss

Lips part and eyes close
shared air mingles with warm passions
my mind opens to yours

your mind like tendrils of a sargasso sea,
envelopes my mind, soothing
with dark green darknesses
diatoms twinkle like stars in a dark nebula
reflecting off the mirror of your thoughts

time oozes slowly, stops and goes
in the distance a tick tock is heard

Lids close and eyes open
and the magic lingers.
