First Love – Poetry

A challenge poem written for : ClownPonders’ Poetry Challenge First Love

First Love

Her eyes light up as the phone beeps,
Signaling a new text
From someone she calls–

Just a friend.

Carefully arranged hair slides down
Covering her eyes
To hide behind.

Her giggles build up
Quickly closed off
So as not to give away
Her newfound affection
For someone she calls–

Just a friend.

Cautiously optimistic she begins
Building a persona
One to fit in with him
And his friends.

A warning is given
Warning her not to lose herself
In the struggle to be
With someone she calls–

Just a friend.

Slowly, it seems, at first
Her mood and her character
Begin to meld and change
Molding herself into
Someone he can’t live without.

It isn’t very long
Before her time is taken up
And her focus is now on
Him, she now calls–

Her First Love.

– Angela Quiram, 2012
