Teenage Love Affair

Teenage Love Affair

By: Ms.K

How can I forget my first love?

The first time my heart flutter from your voice.

Looking into your eyes thinking about our future

I remember when I first meet you and I hated you

I hated all the rumors about you

But I was still intrigued to know you

Something about you entrapped my interest

I wrote your name all over my books

I sneak my father’s cell phone to call you

Nothing matter from our early morning meets

To our late nights sneaking around

We had our secret locations after school

Sneaking off school campus to meet you

I still can’t believe I was falling for you

I didn’t care that you was older man

And I was still a child

I wanted to get to know you

I didn’t care what anyone said

No one can stop my teenage love affair

I was going to be your ride and die chick

I didn’t really matter what the consciousness for this love

I wanted you to be my first but I was scared

I was scared to lose apart of me to you

I was scared, but I was in love

I couldn’t help but dial your number all day

Sneaking in-between classes trying to reach you

I just wanted to hide with you

Nothing matter at the end of the day

I was falling hard

My heart was trying to explode from daydreaming about you

I just want to touch your soft lips

I just want to hold your hands

I just want to be alone with you

It was important that you was not only my fairytale love affair

But with every fairytale comes a tragic ending

I never wanted to imagine the ending

But I know it was near

I was a child and you was a man

I could not experience what you wanted

I was not ready to experience those things

I just wanted to have our secret kissing

While you wanted to enter my forbidden fruit

I was not ready

I know you were not going to wait

So my daydreaming became a bare reality

My teenage love affair was ending

Our secret meeting was slowly dissolving

Your name was erasing from my books

I still didn’t care what any one said

I still cared

Your was still my first teenage love affair

I know we had our moment but

We had to say our goodbyes

It was not working

But you was my first

I didn’t care for the longest but

I was not ready for all the level of this affair

But you will always be my fist teenage love affair!
