the kiss was tender, and nothing more. not assuming, not asking, not wanting or desiring. it was just a kiss.

their arms held me tenderly. they didn't need me, or strangle me. they didn't hold me distastefully. they just did.

i held their body against mine, our breaths echoing together, our hearts resounding together, our melodies entwined.

this was what i had been waiting for, and time was nothing.

The Black Winter Ninja

black pants cover all
but the tips of my white shoes,
black gloves, black hat,
black earbuds and earbags too.

a black cheater scarf
wrapped around my neck,
and black sunglasses
to keep the sun in check.

a black polartech coat
over a black hoodie fleece.
I'm the Black Winter Ninja--
glasses are all anyone sees.
