Once upon a time.

Once upon a time.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

First love are never forgotten.

"

Once upon a time....



I returned to Akron in 1980. I was looking for a sweet memory

In 1973 at my fifteen birthday party. The prettiest friend of my sister gave me a birthday kiss.

Beautiful Susie held my hand and she took me up stair to a private room.

I held her and we kissed.

She was someone else love but I adored her so.

She was almost a woman and I knew.

She was a wish and a pray for me.


Now I wandered back to her and I hoped she did okay.

I found her living at her aunt house.

I saw her and she had a baby on her hip.

And she gave me a kind smile and I went to her.

I hugged her tightly and I kissed her face often.

I told her. Dear Susie, are you okay?. I never forgot your beautiful face.

She gave me a sad smile and she told me.

I am not so pretty no-more and now a divorced woman with a baby girl.


I brought her closer and I whispered.

You are more beautiful than I remember dear Susie,

you have become a momma and I am so glad to see you.

She begin to cry and I cry with her.


I told her. I did okay. The Army gave me some skills and I hope you are okay.

We put the baby in a stroller and we walked to the nearby park.

I held her hand and I loved hearing her speak.

Her soft voice and gentle face, I adored still.


I asked her dear Susie. Do you need anything?

She reached over and she kissed me and she whispered.

I have what I need. A friend near and a kind voice.

I need someone to make me feel beautiful, make me feel loved.


I caressed her flowing brown hair and I told her.

I have always loved you Susie.

I have written poetry for my beautiful first love.

Susie, Susie. I am here to make you smile again.

You created an entire, beautiful story here that so, so many can relate to. The feeling of nostalgia is truly there, you can feel it even if you weren't the writer. You feel as if you're really there. You added so many subtle elements that turned it into a story. 'The prettiest friend of my sister' 'She was almost a woman' 'The Army gave me some skills.' The way you wrote this was brilliant and thoughtful, filled with youth and nostalgia. You can really see and feel the characters grow up in such a powerful way. It's like reading an entire love in one beautiful poem.
