That Thrill of Swooning – Poem for a Prompt

There’s a random prompt going on over at:  http://neverendingstorydepository.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/random-prompt/  Prompt is:  the first time.  I think I’ve finished my entry.  Goes like this:

That Thrill of Swooning
Perhaps my belt
was cinched a bit too tightly
or afternoons in July
down South
are just too hot and humid
and ripe.
I can’t be sure exactly
what is was
about the first time
I felt your arms around me
– your lips close enough to kiss.
Even the salty breeze was breathless.
