1. The last time I kissed you
was in a crowded study hall.
You proceeded to tell me
exactly
how long it had been since our first one after that.

2. The last time I kissed you
was beneath a street light;
and the entire sky
full of stars
was trapped in your eyes.

3. The last time I kissed you,
you promised me forever.

4. The last time you kissed me
was on a friend’s sofa,
legs tangled and resolve spread thin.

5. The last time I kissed you
was in a double bed
and you pushed me down and told me to
‘go back to sleep’,
the smell of the night still breathing into me.

6. The last time we kissed was near the sea.
It’s been rather lonely since then.
