First Love Remembrance

First Love Remembrance

A Poem by Eddie Phillips

We cannot go back but we all have a first love that stole our heart.

Young and oblivious is how I first fell into love.  
She was not what I had expected so I needed a little shove.  
We playfully tussled for a moment, as we both tried to hide the attraction we held inside.  
However, when she moved too close, we kissed, and we no longer wanted to hide.  

I was falling totally in love and she would smile when she saw me stare.  
The problem was she was not someone I could openly show my desire, love, and care.  
So, we simply stole hidden kisses and hugs when people were distracted or we were out of sight.  
For a week it was me and her stealing kisses and caresses in the middle of the night.
One night we both mentally said "yes" and we discarded kiddy games and virgin play.  
We both loosed our passion.  She guided me inside and both our bodies and wills gave way.

Sex was new to me and only proved how much I wanted to make her mine.  
She gave me little bits of herself and every night I lost my teenage mind.  
I was no longer scared as I felt her melt in joy under me.  
I loved every inch of her chocolate body in the hidden darkness, where no one else could see.  
I delved into the depths of her love and she took every inch of mine.  
One night I felt her body go tense as she let out all the passion she had built up inside.
Sadly, a few days is all we ever had together; 
I fell in love with a girl who could never truly be mine.  
She left and I cried for days as I thought about her all the time.  
We all have a first love that started us on the path of devotion.
We can never go back in time but we thank God for every moment and emotion.
She never knew she was my first love and the center of my pubescent joy.  
I never told her I loved her back then; when she made a man out of a boy.

First loves are not forgotten. We just move on and keep them hidden in our hearts. We wish them well in life but that first breakup is a memory that defines who we are.
