Forgotten Kiss

I am a content writer who enjoys expressing my thoughts through poetry, travel and well-being tips.


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.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on June 04, 2020:

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.

Great write.

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

Lorna Lamon on April 22, 2020:

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.

CHATRA RAM from BARMER INDIA on April 21, 2020:

Nice poetry

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 21, 2020:

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

Kyler J Falk from California on April 21, 2020:

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!
