First Love

he sits waiting
holding her picture
would she still be the same




I haven't written in my form for a while. I was pleased when Poetry Soup recognized my form. 4 syllables first line 5 syllables second line. Third line is a question made up of 6 syllables. No capital letters.

You have invented a really nice form, Richard:) it makes people think and find answers on their own:) for this one, I feel she would have definitely changed in outer appearance, but her inner beauty might remain the same:)

I love the form and the poem, Richard. I'm guessing "no" Time has a way of changing everything:(

Great original form poem, Richard. As for the answer to the question: Yes, she will be the same because, to me, the first love will always be idealized, frozen in perfection. The outer image will matter not. The innerchange can never supplant the original, idealized version. That's just how first love rolls. Love the poem, my friend. Love and best wishes.

Literally, this reminds me of Donne's 'Go and catch a falling star'. However, the intended meaning might be different. Good write.
