First Love

Shy eyes soft and pleading,
Unaware you are,
Of my love for you,
Grace me with your sweet voice,
To calm my trembling heart,
Grace me with your touch,
To ease my aching torment,
My days are shadowed with nightly thoughts,
And dreams crumble at your feet,
As do I,
In my silence,
I pledge my love for you,
In my stillness,
I vow to render myself your heart's worship,
Your desires are the rains,
And I thirst in maddening plight,
So pour upon me,
Embrace me,
Drop by drop,
And let me live in these nightly thoughts,
As you look at me,
Blissfully unaware.

A love poem worthy of a young and innocent heart. Nice! ~ Geezer.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

Thx :)

Beautiful poetry. For me, it seems much stronger and more mature than a first love - at least a young, innocent first love. There is intense desire and "...thirst in maddening plight." The final few lines are pretty passionate. I like the title a lot, but the way the poem speaks to me, the title falls just a bit shy of the essence of the poem. It really is beautiful language.
Thank you,
L

Thx for the feedback! :)

Lavender got me thinking about virginity. This one takes me back to like my elementary school crush. Now I’m contemplating that. What nostalgia. It really captures some feelings I remember having with precision. Nice job

Emotion wrought of every line. Loved it.
It's painful for me to say this but thanks for the reminder.
