First Kiss

I remember that first

kiss that we shared,

Sitting on your wall,

you had egg in your hair.

A birthday prank

that I had found funny

left us up all night until it got sunny.

We didn’t know

each other well,

yet we talked so long

you couldn’t tell.

I knew by how you looked

that you were a goth

Dressed in all black,

I thought you were hot.

You told me about

the places you had been

And I told you lies

about movies I hadn’t seen.

 I tried to impress you

by trying to act cool,

You saw

straight through me

and told me

to stop acting the fool.

It’s hard to believe

that thirty years has passed.

Who would have thought

that kiss would never be surpassed.
