i kissed you back

        (well not after but during?)

because i wanted to taste and touch

        fill these other senses

        with memories of you

because things happened as quickly


because of the way you whispered


barely breathing

        that this would not make a difference

and because in our poetry

        (and when I'm with you)

words seem to run intoeachother

        (they run together)

        becoming useless.
