Almost Kiss

Form: Free Verse

Within her embrace
my hands hold her close
and we almost kiss
and I whisper, ‘I can’t do this!’
behind closed eyes, I hide my confusion
unspoken but she knows it is there
she has all I can give tonight
instead, we watch a movie
as I struggle within
to embrace my own identity
maybe then I can give more
than an almost kiss
