That First Kiss

The darkness concealed-
Like a blanket it wrapped us
In its anonymity
That first touch of your hand
Softly tilting up my chin
Until my lips met yours
The flash of light and color
Against the concealing darkness
A sight of time and dreams
Life and light and hope
All contained in the brief touch
Lips on lips, the exchange of trust
Between two damaged souls
Daring, in one moment
To fall in love, again.
