"Nerve-cited"

by Pauline Parker 4 months ago in love poems
Report Story

Nervous/Excited

Polly's Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

L - looking at you as I drove up, my face erupting into a smile

O - our first date was about to commence

V - very 'nerve-cited' I fidgeted about my car aimlessly

E - eventually mustering the gusto to step outside and say 'hi'

~

A - all my life I've been waiting for a woman like you

T - taken aback by our mutual inability to keep a straight face

~

F - first, we greet one another and can't seem to maintain eye contact

I - in our favourite summer outfits, we begin our hike

R - rushing again? No, it feels so natural

S - sitting on rocks in an untouched place to share life experiences

T - took my breath from my lungs, glad I brought us some ice-cold ones

~

S - so excited to meet after speaking for weeks

I - I couldn't not meet you, even though I was late

G - gotta love Polly's cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

H - her beauty matches yours, inside and out

T - together three years later, my heart is forever yours, my love

Pauline Parker

I've always had a knack for writing, but never truly embraced it or stuck with it. These days, however, the magical world of creation with words is calling my name. Here I am, writing for the first time in so many years. Thank you, Vocal!
