I always used to keep my eyes open while kissing.
Didn't exactly realize I was doing it, though I was fairly aware of what I was seeing. I think I enjoyed watching someone else closing their eyes; being as completely in the moment as I surely was.
No one had ever complained, save for one ex who thought I was looking at other men while kissing him.
And no. I was not. My eyes, while open, have never been the wandering type. In any way.
Then I dated a man who said he kept his eyes open, too.
My eyes must be shy, because they started closing after that. He called me out, said I lied about being an open-eye-kisser.
I just wasn't ready for the contact it brought. Looking eye-to-eye with someone during something as crazy intimate as a simple kiss can be... Well, it was new to me.
Eventually I liked it. For years my eyes had a mind of their own, opening and closing depending on where the feeling took them, and his did the same.
I don't know what I do. I haven't paid attention in a very long time; haven't even thought about it.
You'll have to kiss me and see.
But what about you?
Do you kiss with your eyes open? Look at the person you're kissing, to see them in a vulnerable moment?
Or do you close them, savouring the kiss?
Enlighten me, since I seem to be remembering nicer, sweeter things than usual.
Fanciful girl I am, at times.
