So here I am feeling guilty and dumb. Suddenly words that once meant so much feel empty. I feel empty. Lost. Confused. I close my eyes. "Is it over yet"? I ask, his hands held lightly over my ears. "No, not yet" he whispers. I can feel his gaze even though my eyes are closed. His soft lips press firmly and confidently against mine. I keep my eyes closed to savor the taste of his kiss. My mouth curls into a smile. I open my eyes. He's gone.
