First Love

My heart was beating fast with every look
His eyes were searching me in every nook


Hearts were beating a different tune altogether
His condition was worse than mine, not any better


Little did we realize culprit were eyes that’d met
Such was furor due to head and heart disconnect


Excited panic was coursing wildly in both our veins
Unknown emotions made us shy and giddy  in turns


First awareness first sprouted on a board exam bench
Deliberately or not elbows met making hearts wrench


After exam we saw one another briefly before leaving
Silent looks, unknown questions, no answers giving


Cupid sprout rooted, grew in strength for love unknown
Fledgling love’s heartache head tried desperately to disown


Finally love wires crossed, connected just by sheer fluke
Eyes searching results on board met whilst hands shook


Delightful surprise, romantic emotions suddenly course
Throwing us in a clinch involuntarily pushed by a force


A quick peck on the cheek a hasty goodbye and that was it
My brush with first fledgling love was no more than this!!!


First love is only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity.
George Bernard Shaw


No, this trick won’t work…How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms
 of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
Albert Einstein


A first love always occupies a special place.
Lee Konitz

American, Musician The minute I heard my first love story,
 I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.
 Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
Maulana Jalalu’ddin Rumi


Men always want to be a woman’s first love.
 Women have a more subtle instinct:
 What they like is to be a man’s last romance.
Oscar Wilde 1856-1900, British Author, Wit
