first love
young love
the kind of missing that
leaves you with a space, a skip
you feel the space and want it
filled, no longer alone

the skip reminds you of the
constant beat of your heart that
needs one more beat from the
closeness of that someone
you’re missing and one that is
missing you

to be young and in love
was a time when it was so new
you really didn’t pay attention to
other feelings
the gap was filled and more than
that, the time was yours
a special time
a time to be remembered
rarely doubting

now second love or the next
time around, it’s a new beginning
like starting a new career
full of directions, how to start, and
how to stay on track
