In the cloak of the night
The long day now free of light
At last a passionate kiss
With an underlying wish
In that wide open view
To their hearts they were true
Music, laughter, moments that grew
Caught together in an adventure so new
Being taken over to go with the flow
With the allure of city lights so smooth the glow
They both knew how to keep some control
In a way for these days they were playing a role
But for a while they truly lit up the night
The connection, the bond was just so right
After some time the power of those days would fade
A new story, just cordial between them was made
But deep down somewhere, lost in the soul
Those nights so brief made them feel so whole
Hiding away in their thoughts, these moments of bliss
It once was so special, this forgotten kiss.

Thanks for the thoughtful feedback Brenda, the poem does have the element that there may or may not be more to the story, while accepting this chapter is done.

You have touched upon the magical moment of the beginning of a relationship followed by the cool down phase which sadly follows.
The title forgotten kiss is a good fit.
I'm not sure why it has to fade away...unless the touch of it is just too scary at the moment.

Thanks for your feedback, yes the bittersweet element is there but tried to still keep it subtle.

I love the story within the lines of this beautiful poem Nella. Your poem flows really well and takes us on a journey of love and remembering. Almost bittersweet.

This is such a beautiful poem, Nella. Brief nigths or otherwise can still have great meaning. The forgotten kiss does say in all.

Those moments, though fleeting, those are the moments that I live for. I can't help but feel a touch of sadness after reading this, a sadness born of yearning, and then it is overshadowed by sweet memories and promises of making more in the future.
A roller coaster of a poem here, Nella, great work!
