N - Nearly Fading

Waves of emotion blaze
binding them tightly
in the wraths of silence.

Drops of tears stain
their paths of choice.
In mere moments
before they fade away

hands reach out to touch 
as they search
for the strength and will
to try once more.

Joined by dancing eyes
their lips lock in a kiss
that stops time ….

What a wonderful poem about a couple's reunion, or departure. I think I've interpreted it either way, so I could be wrong here.

Anyhow, it's a pleasure to meet you from the A-Z Challenge!

I learned yesterday that was called a 'holy crap, my underwear just melted' kiss...

I like the poem, though--great feel to it!

Nice poem. The concept of nearly fading away could apply to relationships or interests, so this works well in a lot of different settings.
