Magpie Tales - I wonder

Woodward and Newman posted by Magpie Tales

I Wonder

When I see
People kissing
Are both
Comfortable.

Are their noses
In the right place
Their teeth brushed
Is the kiss
Memorable?

Or are they
Worried
About what the other 
Must think.

Am I doing this right
Is this as awkward
As it is going to get
Will the next kiss
Be Bliss?

Are these just my insecurities
Or do others
Obsess
About their tongues
The shoes on the bed
Worried about who
Is looking?

Will I get
Another chance
To do this
Right?

I often am transported by the Magpie prompt for the week but this one just made me itch. I worried about the wrinkles on the bed and the shoes, and how long they had to hold that pose for the photographers.  It all transported me back to my early days of kissing.

  7. they say that when you see a love scene in a movie, and the lovers look like they are kissing so perfectly, it's not very comfortable
