The Frozen Kiss
by Meghan Falter

The crimson hue
Navigates the curves and encompasses the extent
Of her lips
She replaces the lipstickís coverture
With a single snap
And the young manís heart sets ablaze
His eyes propose the event
Hers accept
The two draw near
Their arms embrace
And their lips collide

Even in the heat of this passion
The world rests frozen
Time stands still
Nothing else exists

But in the midst of their intoxication
The young girl sighs, dazzled
And the young manís face and neck are red
But not from his flush heart
