First blush of love

rose (2)Years ago that moment sublime

Preserved like a monument through time

In the innermost sulci of my brain

Close to the centers of pleasure, and pain

How  the magic that happened that day

Changed the axis of my earth, I cannot say

An avalanche of emotions descended on me

Making me plunge in a tempestuous sea

On a psychedelic trip I seemed to embark

With distorted perception I stumbled in the dark

Never knew what this passion could do

Borne out of first love, this fire just grew

Alas! Unrequited remained my desire

Your coolness extinguished those embers of fire

Devastated, I raved and raged all alone

Such unspeakable restlessness I had not known

It does still amaze me, to this very day

How love can captivate you in its sway

The memory of first love is fresh in my mind

The vortex of emotions though I’ve left behind..

  1. That was brilliantly written and so beautifully named ! Loved the way you described such a complex emotion so deeply. Took me to another world, that is a thing of past. ‘How love can captivate you in its sway’, the best line I have read today. 🙂
