I remember them all
with loving fondness,
an aching desire
the pain, the hurt, the touch
something like hush-hush history
through the ravishing ravages of time....
My first love ache,
my first ache in my pre-teen tummy,
my first break-up with my little friend,
my first prize in school,
my first one liner dialogue in a school play,
my first green cycle,
my first crush,
my first kiss
I remember them all...
