Kiss and tell


Across that room our eyes met.

Like burning fire, I swear

We were ablaze!

How could you?

How could I?

How could we

Escape that moment?

A moment

So “wrong”


So right!

You and I knew it was “forbidden”;

At least forbidden by them!

Yet we let “it”

Burn on like wild fire


Like fire on kerosene

There was no stopping

Like poison in every “bite”

We both knew this was it!

  1. Dad and I are so glad you didn’t listen to “them”! We love having you as a daughter-in-law and having grandchildren! “They” were so wrong.
