As lips touched each other for the first time
The air enveloping them blushed pink
Like a warm cocoon sealing out the world
For the lovers, lips locked in love.
No explosion of stars around, no bells ringing
No electrifying current running through veins
Just a kiss, as if they always kissed
Started in a long-distant past, continued till eternity.
As lips and tongue started making love to each other
All the invisible walls between them
Crumpled, like sandcastles in the beach
Washed away by the waves of a deeper knowing.
In this love-infused cocoon humming its own melody
A different language spoken by the lips fused as one
Sentiments buried in the other’s heart suddenly becoming clear
A love-song hitherto unheard, unique to the lovers.
In this timeless heavenly body created by the first kiss
Walls of doubt and uncertainty, gifted by a rational world
Get dissolved, all the past pain and hurt
Carried around like an invisible gloomy cloak.
Nothing existed in this luminous cocoon
Only love and heady passion
All notions of time, place and imagined obligations
Losing the significance attributed to them.
In their place new pearls and corals
Treasures from the sea, brought ashore suddenly
By the waves of passion, strewn around to shine softly
In a paradise born when lips touched.
