The First Time

Written for the random prompt – “The first time”


The first time I saw you,

My heartbeat was caught,

The first time we spoke,

I’d found what I sought,

The first time we danced,

The crowd disappeared,

The first time we kissed,

My soul had been seared,

The first time we touched,

I burned from within,

The first time we loved,

I felt fire on my skin,

The first time we slept,

I immersed in your heat,

The first time we woke,

I felt so complete,


Every first time with you,

Is a first time anew.

She has been in the witness protection programme for a number of years and once lived in Brighton as a bearded mechanic called Dave!

  1. Reblogged this on helen midgley and commented:

    There is a new prompt over on The Community Storyboard,
    “The first time”
    You can use it literally–using the words or just be inspired to write a poem or story about your experience doing…whatever you did for the first time.

  2. You have such a lovely way with words. This brings back memories.
