First Love - a poem for Valentine's Day

Editor: I have always enjoyed writing love poems and just thought I would submit this to you, in hopes it could be published before Valentine’s Day.


First Love

Fathomed from fiction fought for by faith

Inside the heart feelings don’t wait.

Ripening, relishing, relinquished with hope

Starved for acceptance without knowing the scope

Tireless patience prevails not too soon


Lust lingers low lit up by the moon

In difference, in same, souls separate are true

Via love for one another the two become new

Endlessly together we live for each other,

One day to become a new father and mother.

Marcello Fancello,
