Dizzy With Love

I chanced upon a memory
that seems like yesterday
but it was really long ago
and oh, so far away.

It was a chilled November night
and in my thirteenth year
the stars were gathered in my eyes
for the one I loved was there.

We sat there talking quietly
I, full of nervous doubt
just trying to sound normal
thinking that I might pass out.

He was quite a few years older
a friend that had been true
I knew that he had won my heart
and I hoped he felt it, too.

My heart was beating way too loud
through my words I stumbled
and when he looked deep in my eyes
oh, how my stomach tumbled!

I thought that I would die right there
he made my dreams come true
he said the words I longed to hear
he had felt the same way, too!

He swept me quickly in his arms
and claimed that first sweet kiss
I never even had the chance
to worry I would miss!

There isn't much that I can say
it flipped my head around
and all the world was so devine
as I floated off the ground.

The time had come to say good night
and he kissed me once more
I said good night and turned around
and crashed into a door!

Inspired by John Hecks Egads, My First Kiss contest

*I was trying to act all cool and collected, mature.  I was so embarressed I wanted the 
ground to swallow me up! RG

    Sounds like he had you love bound, bound to do something crazy. I believe we've all crashed into a door or more.... Heck when I was 11 - 14 yrs. old I was so ornery my mom and dad put me in a Military School where we even had to march in formation to school and everywhere we went...Nice writing...great rhyme..Lawrence in Lou.

    But it's memories like that that make it even more special, too bad for the embarassment though. Love the read, however, this is wonderfully written. Michael

    How cute is this!! Ouch....hope you didn't hurt your nose!! Reminds me of my time when I was older (about l6), when a boy dropped me off after school, and I slammed my hand in the door of his car getting out, ....I pretended all was fine, and waited till he drove away, then bawled because it hurt so bad!! (Oh that pride!! It is our enemy!) :) Good luck in the contest, Robin!! ~ love, Carrie
