Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. This week’s theme is love.
Today’s poem is for a first love long gone.
I welcome comments on my poems at https://nicholasgordon.blogspot.com.
First love is like playing with fire:
Aglow with pain and glory.
Tell me, my dear first love,
Whether I'm burned into your heart.
The fire in your body,
The glory of your touch:
Ah! my dear first love,
Never, never leave my heart!
Although the fire is distant,
The pain is always near.
My dear first love, please listen:
I hold you in my heart.
