The time the Earth stood still

Lost in a sea of right and wrong,
Should and shouldn't,
Do and do not,
Yours is the only face I see.

None of that seemed to matter,
My head swimming with wine,
The sunlight on our skin,
Your arms around me.

That moment was all I could make sense of,
The sheer bliss of being held by someone,
When the whole world melts away.

And even now,
Even after,
I long to be back there.

In that instant,
That instant of abandon,
It was all I wanted for you to kiss me,
The time the Earth stood still.
