Anticipation



The love in those very early years So intense, so filled with suspense What would it be like, that very first kiss The feeling was so so intense Almost more than I could bear The anticipation, the longing to know What all the older guys were raving about “Making out” in the back row of the show Eventually my time did finally arrive Nearly blew my head off my shoulders And that was only my very first kiss What came later made me utterly smoulder Won't go into detail but holy ding dong crap Sure made my temperature rise Got all sweaty, forgot who the hell I was Greeted all my friends with high fives Then I knew what all the fuss was about Sure haven't forgotten it since In fact, I consider myself a professional now Could teach about love I'm convinced My hairy days have long since departed Only memories are left to remember But holy cadoodle what a wonderful journey As I'm nearing my month of December! © Jack Ellison 2013

    How I enjoyed this poem of yours. You've had some good times and wonderful life experiences. Are you going for another 50? I love your line "But holy cadoodle what a wonderful journey"

    Every day we wake, there is suspense on what Dragon will do next. The anticipation is frightening if you let your imagination run wild... You always know the temperature is going to rise as something begins to smolder... then light fire... Actually you DO need love for this to happen... Love for a cutsey little adorable FIRE-Y Dragon... LOL Now that I think about it... I'll let you borrow him if you like... Take Him PLEASE... Naw, just kidding... Really Dragon! I WAS kidding... Gotta run...
