First Love’s Sting
How deep the piercing, how sharp the sting
once young love starts to lose its bling.
Hearts start to stutter that used to sing.
You aren’t his princess, he’s not your king.
Your broken heart, trapped in a sling,
cannot follow when he takes wing,
taking with him everything.
No veil, no vows, no rice, no ring.
What passed for love was just a fling.
The love you thought would always cling
ripped cruelly with his exiting.
Your song of starlight, love and spring,
alas, was just a passing thing.
You’re left with “. . . . jada jing jing jing.”
No symphony, but just a ditty.
So goes first love, dear. Such a pity.
The prompt yesterday was sting, but since the link still doesn’t work, let’s just say
sometimes, love doesn’t turn out to be as glorious as we might have wished.
