First Kiss

A boy moved into our small town, lived just down the way,
His British accent and lovely white smile, just made my day.

He invited me to the Easter dance and bought me a corsage
From beginning to end, the whole scene seemed like a mirage.

I wore a new white and yellow dress my Mom sewed for me,
She placed yellow ribbons in my hair, they matched perfectly.

We walked hand in hand to the dance talking about school,
Meanwhile my stomach was churning trying to stay so cool.

We swayed to Hey Jude, I thought I was in heaven for sure,
Yet scared of what would happen next - was I too immature.

Then the song ended, if there were others there I was unaware,
He moved his hands up my arms and touched my lips with care.

My expectations were high, thought I’d know love right away,
But I felt nothing, my hopes dashed, we broke up the next day.

    With "Hey Jude", you at least had a long dance with him. Good descriptiveness here. This write vicariously placed me at that dance.

    Really cute Lee. I didn't write one for this contest. Too many kiss contests on at the same time. I tried the other one. Thanks for your kind words. It is sad that we have to outlive so many of our family. I have my sister left and I am the last of my generation along with her. We had five brothers. My son died suddenly in 1999. I still miss him so much. Love, Joyce

    Very true Joyce, I am sorry about your family. Even years later and I still miss my family. Take care. Makes family times all the more precious and hard. Your work is wonderful. Love Lee

    hahaha, I love this how you ended it. Yep, that sure can happen sometimes. Did you ever read the poem, jenny kissed me? It's totally opposite of this and there was another famous poem about a first kiss that was a lot like yours how it ended, but now I forgot the name of it! Anyway, sure enjoyed this.
