    A Love Game # 39

    LOVE WASHED OVER ME

    Love washed over me
    Arriving at my feet,
    Like the lapping of waves
    On a lonely beach
    But it drifted away
    On the ebb tide

    FALLING IN LOVE FOR THE FIRST TIME

    Falling in love for the first time
    Is like a fledgling leaning to fly
    But will new love crash and burn?
    Or will it blaze across the sky?

    I ASKED CAROLINE OUT ON A DATE

    I asked Caroline out on a date
    At the start of the summer break
    Neither of us had dated before
    So there was quite a lot at stake
    We met at the entrance to the park
    And walked to the café on the lake
    We sat at a table in the window
    Where she had a strawberry milk-shake
    Which she drank through a straw
    But my choice proved to be a mistake
    As I tried to be more grown up
    And ordered coffee and cupcake
    The coffee was bitter and something
    In the cake caused a hives outbreak
    Our second date was less eventful
    But was far more memorable

    AS ADMIRATION DWELLS

    As admiration dwells
    In following eyes
    Such attraction can lead
    To unwelcome advances
    But equally it could be
    The perfect stranger
    So she takes her chances
    In search of “The one”

    SHE BROUGHT GLORIOUS SUNLIGHT

    She brought glorious sunlight
    To the darkness of my soul
    And the coldness of my heart
    For living alone had taken its toll
    But just spending time with her,
    Has shown me again how to live
    And revealed just how much love
    One special person can give

    A CALL OF THE INNOCENCE

    A call of the innocence
    That was what it was
    When the fifteen year old me
    Picked up the phone
    To call Theresa Flaherty
    My palms were so sweaty
    I could barely hold the phone
    Whereas my mouth was so dry
    I doubted I could speak
    But I dialled the number
    And I eventually got it right
    On the third attempt
    And then it seemed
    To ring for an eternity
    But then it was answered
    “Hello” the sweet voice said
    “Theresa?” I croaked
    “Yes” she replied sweetly
    “It’s Paul” I said “from school”
    I don’t know why I added the last bit
    “Oh hi Paul” she said
    And I tried to gauge if it was
    A despairing “oh hi Paul”
    Or a pleasantly surprised one
    But as I had never asked
    A girl out before
    I had no benchmark for it
    So a few minutes passed
    Of nervous small talk
    Interspersed with awkward silences
    As the heart in my chest pounded
    And beat like an eagles wing
    While my head throbbed
    And my stomach
    Was a flutter of butterflies
    As I approached the reason for my call
    And the question I had for her
    Which I had been rehearsing all week
    But it vanished from my mind
    So in the end I rather abruptly blurted out
    “Will you go to the pictures with me?”
    “Oh” she exclaimed with surprise
    And added “Yes I’d love to”
    My heart was doing cartwheels of delight
    But I had to try to remain calm
    “That’s great” I responded and hung up
    And so ended a call of innocence,
    And then I cursed myself for being an idiot
    So I rang Theresa again five minutes later
    To discuss the date, place and time
    And so began our first passion

    I love the stories that you tell in your poetry. Very pleasing.
    My favorite here would be SHE BROUGHT GLORIOUS SUNLIGHT

    I can imagine what happened on the second date with Caroline. Nice description of the difficulty of calling Theresa.
