a poem by Jan Oskar Hansen

We’re standing too close
tried to pull away,
could not from the woman I had never met before
but loved intensely.

Slowly absorbed by her magnetic sensuality,
no moral concerns,
nothing mattered than this moment
and when we kissed
I lost my emotional virginity.

So passionate our desire
that we became one breathing in unison,
my heart hers
and her body mine.

This was the moment I had feared
the totality of love!
all embracing and without boundaries
when the light of beauty absolves humanity,
burn away conventions
until only purity remains,
real and lasting an eternity.
