Old Poem, Written Age 16

I wish I hadn’t kissed you,
We should’ve left that out;
‘Cause ever since we did, it’s all
That I can think about

Your scent, intoxicating, and
The soft feel of your skin:
I wish I’d never kissed you,
Or wish I could

    1. I like yours… it captures the age better.

      I edit these pretty thoroughly when I reprint them, except for the occasional one I label “unedited”. Those read like English was maybe a third language for me.

  1. That’s my favourite picture in all your posts! It reminds me of someone!

  2. Lovely poem!! And I’m still 16 and I write poems too.πŸ˜ƒ

      1. Thank you so much!! Your appreciation means a lot to meπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  3. Fabulous!! I love it! I love my old poems too. My daughter (14) just wrote a poem/song about her first romance/heartbreak. I told her, one day, honey, you will read or sing this and it will take you right back to this moment. Writing can mark the moments of our lives so we can revisit them. Thanks for sharing your moment!!
