Inspired by a story I came across online. This is for all you once-hurt and lost-loved readers out there :) Hope that you'll enjoy reading this poem :) Feedback of any sort is appreciated and I would love it if you would also check out my other pieces if you liked reading this one! :D Thank you for your time :)

It was only when I was sixteen years old,

When my best friend asked me about the time I first kissed,

When I replied that I have yet,

To feel the softness of one's lips against mine,

Or tasted the sweetness within their mouths,

He promised me that if I have not had my taste,

Of sweet passion yet by my twentieth birthday,

He would place it upon himself to do it.


For, he told me-

A first kiss should be given,

To someone who you trust,

Who you loved and knew with all of your heart and mind,

For someone who would not leave you with unanswered questions,

Or a bitter taste within your mouth,

For someone who can make flowers grow,

Within the dryness of your bones,

For someone who can clear the dustiest corners of your mind,

Who is able to understand,

The scars upon your soul and the demons living within your mind.


But it was two years later on my eighteenth birthday,

Away from all the laughter and noise,

When you laid me upon your bed,

And french kissed me under the fine sheets,

In the dark of your room,

With nothing but the radient glow from the moon,

Shining upon us,

Enabling us to see each other clearly,

But even then,

It was all a faint blur,

Of misty breathes and fiery touches,

And your lips upon mine,

And mine upon yours.


That was two years ago,

When my mind first shone with swirling colours of light,

And confusion mixed with passions of delight,

When I first felt the softness of someone else's lips rather than mine,

And the electricity that sparked within my very skin,

But it was only two days later,

When you disappeared from my sight,

Taking all my answers with him,

My heart and half of my life,

My first taste of heaven which started out so sweet,

Has now become a bitter taste of hell,

From all the memories I keep,

It was he who promised me

Protection from my vulnerability,

But it was also he who took it all away from me.


It was two years ago,

When I first gave him my heart,

And in return he gave me nothing but darkness and the truth of his soul.

It was two years ago,

When I gave him my first kiss,

And he left me wanting and lonely.

He was my first kiss.
