The First Time

Do you remember the first time?
the very first time

when your eyes met theirs
and in that instant
your world changed forever

the very first time
you moved beyond the fascination
when the secret images in your heart
became reality

when a force of magnetic proportion
made you move toward them
fear forgotten

and to touch
became the only priority
that filled your mind
and heart and senses

and at that moment when you touched
you found yourself to be
an entirely unknown entity

and all that was most important to you
until then
faded into a misty land
of some other's creation

the very first time
you walked on air
and movement became its own energy

and you had to follow
no matter the rules that were broken
no matter logic, intellect or reason
when there was no other possibility
but this…

necessity
like the air of life
you need to breath

excitement growing, feelings rising
shivers up the spine
each nerve alive and senses thrilling

and oh, the possibilities unfolding!

Do you remember the first time?

Anything less
is incomplete
