First Love



Ahh my first love, I remember her well Her name appropriately was Janice Valentine Think it was Grade Two though not really sure Tried so hard to be beside her in line My head was spinning for the very first time Wondering what this feeling was about Had never felt anything quite like this before So excited I wanted to shout Competition was a guy called Glen Maidmont But Janice had nothing to do with us She lived far away, about three streets over She didn't quite understand all the fuss We always remember of very first crush A few others have surely enticed But the first is ingrained deep in my soul Wonder if she's had a good life © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hey, you started early, bruv. I was already in my teens when I had my first crush - on Sidney Poitier, no less!!! I think I'm still a bit gaga over him (lol). The man I got married to in the end looks a lot like him. Nice poem, my friend. Licia ;-)

    My first love was Michael D'Angelo in first grade... I chased and he ran... I was so persistant that I wouldn't be surprised if he was running still... LOL... Dragon liked that story... aid he's give me running lessons... No silly Dragon! I finally caught mine by waiting outside his classroom door... sneaky, weren't I!... Worked much better...

    Yes Jack...that first one sticks doesn't it?? Yeah I enjoyed the light-heartedness of this one. So much honesty in your words painting a picture of youthful affection before it was even realized.....or maybe it was??? Good Job! MC

    You my friend, Jack, are an eternal youth! I will not be surprised to hear that your head is still spinning trying to be in line next to....whom? You are a breath of ...youth air that fills our lugs and make our heart spinning! Wonderful work!

    Adorable! Love it! My 1st "crush" was in 6th grade. A girl from the Phillipines named Georgette or "Gigi". She was tall, slender and beautiful caramel skin. I don't typically care for thin girls. But, I made an exception. We did slow dance in 8th grade. Life was complete. =D
