What if I had kissed you?

What if I had kissed you? Would things have stayed the same?

Everything was perfect last night. It was a moment made for touching your lips with mine. It was dark. It was raining. We were alone. The light was just enough for me to see the expressions on your face. And we'd been apart forever.

You'd be taken by surprise. I'd be taken by surprise. Would you respond? Would I hold on? Would our buried passion come to life? Would the ghosts of yesterday and the fears of the future weigh us down?

What if I had kissed you? Would you have stayed?
