My First Crush

I sit there alone on the stone bench,
Under the tree, blowing off the dust.
I breathe the scent of the spring,
As I talk to the aged surfaces.

I have grown old, but I still feel her.
The sneak-peek at her blue skirt.
Her slim legs and smooth skin.
Her fickle heart and heat within.

The joy in her fluky touch.
Her casual pat on my arm.
Her intimacy so warm.
Her playful gestures and charm.

I remember the dimple on her cheek,
The pretty lips when she tried to speak.
Those few days I used to rush,
Just to sit with her, my first crush.

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
