Near Miss #NaPoWriMoDayTwo

Warm and heady Spanish evening
Outside playing on the swings

Nothing very unusual
Until he grins "come follow me"

Chasing him around the corner
Heartbeat racing, so exciting

Lips meet barely, so unfairly
Less first kiss more near miss


Linked up at real toads where we were challenged to write about a time from our past.  I reckon this memory comes from when I was about eight years old.

A near-miss is good for 8 years old. LOL
I remember when I was 12 or 13, and "romance" was having a boy ask if he could walk me home from public skating.
There was a lot to be said for the good old days but, as Susie pointed out, it wasn't all great.
