Incurably Green

A little bit of back story for you,
The number one, first thing not to say on the number one first day,
(that is if you want to go on to day number two),
Is your past relationship ways.
Don’t fret, or sweat, that’s not this letter’s intent,
For I’ve only had one, and for only a month it lasted.
Instead I’ll go to how my childhood dreams were spent.
Like all little girls I dreamed of how I’d be wed.
There was a frozen lake, and huge congregation,
Perfect dress and frozen condensation.
Something was missing, I thought and I thought.
I know what I’ll have but what of have not?
And then was birthed my childhood dream,
Not only to wait for that day to loose chaste,
But also to show the groom what he means.
So I vowed my lips wouldn’t touch another’s in haste.
And I’d wait till that day when I was dawned in white,
Gazing eyes to eyes and for the first time lips pressed to lips.

Unfortunately in college I lost hold of this sight.
And thus (only pursed) my lips touched another.
The first I cast off as a silly little error.
But then on to the second and then to the third.
When I realized in horror,
My childhood dreams had been shot down like a bird.
As green and naive as this makes me look,
Guilt just about, my heart overtook.
My vow was renewed which was easy to keep.
Because, you see, there was no one worthy to seek.

Till I met you,
And the battle betwixt,
My guilt and the spell on which me you bewitched.
Not wanting to loose a chance for the second,
My guilt waved goodbye as I leaned in closer,
And your lips, the beckoned.
And for the first time my spit knew another.
And bliss it was and still is but you see,
My tongue’s still not comfortable with any but me.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I want you to stay,
And surely not to be on your way.
But if this is not part of your dating plan.
And you want out….
I’ll understand.

As ripe and green as this makes me sound, this is verbatim what I’d like to be able to say to this guy I’m dating right now, that I just adore. sigh
