The Kiss

Johnny the Kid almost had a first kiss. A date held him tight--he felt the heave of her chest. When his lips almost touched soft skin she pulled away and moved along, shadowy as innocence in the night. Johnny the Kid instead had heart ache with a hurt deep inside. But he was too young to know she was young too.

Young lust. Aerosmith had a song about it. Good post. The skeleton of a longer story here.

Gotta value these archetypal moments...people don't write songs, or poems, about holding hands n'such anymore.
