Puppy Love


I don’t understand this feeling that dwells within my breast
This bittersweet sensation that will not let me rest
It started with a smile you threw one day when you passed by
And lingers long beyond that time, and I don’t know why

I have known a lot of girls, but have never felt like this
Never have I fantasized about a single kiss
Of course I know it cannot be, we live two different lives
Yours where wishes always grow, while mine fight to survive

The paths we walk are not the same, destined not to meet
The dreams I carry in my heart will never be complete
I’m sure that I’ll get over you, forget what could have been
And wonder what it would be like, to be sixteen again

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
