At the first kiss…………………..

 

“At the first kiss I felt something melt inside me that hurt in an exquisite way.

All my longings, all my dreams and sweet anguish,

All the secrets that slept deep within me came awake,

Everything was transformed and enchanted, everything made sense.”

Hermann Hesse
