My First Love Experience

It was in the early days of our lives We met She was so beautiful My eyes could not stop admiring My heart kept racing Every time it sensed her good-looking approaching But we were too young To give full meaning To the love language Years passed Time kept flying We lost contact But the memory of our past We lugged with us Someway, somehow, Fate found us And brought us together We have now grown So big and sweet We both glitter At each other’s presence We were ready to do a recap of where we left off We laughed and joked about our past We talked about our hey days at the National Theatre We remembered the beautiful past that reflects our true self We both haven’t changed after all At that moment my heart spoke The love language again I knew I was in love with her It wasn’t today It started from when we were kids Man must gather confidence And speak out his feelings Thoughts, Thoughts of what she would say; Don’t laugh at me, We all do it sometimes We were sweet friends But now, I want to take The friendship a step further My heart in full swing Of abnormal beating, It beat faster It spoke two different languages Say it; and keep it Don’t know which of these to believe I was shy I was afraid I was confused I was happy I was sad I felt insane There she was, Standing in front me In their house Beaming with smiles Nii, she said tenderly, ‘I thought you said you had something to tell me, Come on, I can’t wait any longer My ears are itching’ My heart just jumped out And now I want to escape from her presence I wish I could vanish into thin air Stop laughing at me I’m not mouth lazy I was just afraid of the outcome What if she said NO? What if I lose her as a friend? What if she vanishes into thin air? And the what if’s continued … Once in a man’s life time He must draw together courage To speak out his feelings After all, I would not have violated any law For telling a sweet scented woman Gorgeous, attractive and stunning About what I feel for her So my nerves were clamed This was how I started… Esther, I mean, Naa Adjeley The confusion has started Errrmmm, you see, Still didn’t know what to say Hmmm, hope you are doing great? Still confused… ‘I guess your brother, Thomas, Is doing fine?’ She stared at me intently The smiles on her face kept My hopes alive And my heart awake I knew she was expecting Something more than making those comical remarks It’s was now time to speak Naa Adjeley, I travelled from Cape Coast To Accra to come see you To tell you I miss you and errmmm… Please let it out The small voice inside me whispered I left campus to Accra just to let you know that I AM IN LOVE WITH YOU She laughed aloud and said ‘’are you serious!’’ ‘Oh! Yes I am’ I said confidently, Her face suddenly darkened The smiles misplaced I wanted to fade away from her presence After all I’ve let my feelings out That was what mattered to me But I did not have that special magic How long have you felt this way towards me? The next question to answer ‘When we were kids, But it was revamped quite recently’ I replied I could see the confusion on her face She needed some more time To think things through I was excited let it out But she was confused Days passed, I went back to school, We enjoyed chit chatting on the phone But the answer to my request was still hanging She mentioned in one of our conversations She might be travelling But didn’t say when She was a nursing student I was a tourism student The beauty of having a friend You know and love kept my mind awake in school School was on recess I arrived in Accra Left my things unpacked Borrowed money from my old girl Picked a cab to Banana Inn To see the woman That has taken my heart hostage I kept bagging at their gate Agoo! agoo! agooo! Waiting in anticipation to see Her fine looking face And present her with my first gift Her brother, Thomas opened up ‘Hey! Where have you been? It’s been a while’ Was the first question He asked The only interest I had was to see her face I wanted to see the woman That makes my heart beat She was all I cared about Where is Naa Adjeley? I enquired from Thomas I saw the shock on his face My breathe was not catching up with me properly I knew something was wrong ‘Where is she’, I asked again ‘Didn’t she tell you She was travelling?’ My face dropped dead at once I felt a sharp heart ache I almost fainted She left for the U.K Without even saying bye bye Was that why, she didn’t give any reply to my proposal? Why did she keep my heart awake? I left her house, depressed Her gift was a bonus for the cab driver My face drenched in pool of tears I know it hurts But I felt more relieved Why? My feelings had been made lucid to her I now walk with my chest out Ready to move on Ready to open myself up to happiness I still remember Her looks Her smiles Her beauty Her mannerism My first love story The one I have kept furtive Over the years Naa Adjeley My old time love.
