Essential Poetry: The First Time
Sometimes... there's just magic!
The First Time, is about the beginning of a relationship and that time which will always be remembered by lovers. It is a time of anticipation and almost uncontrollable desires that form new hopes and expectations. The first time is unique, an experience that is never the same and will always provide the template to the emotional foundations of the relationship.
There is a first time, for every aspect of every relationship that we engage in, irrespective of whether or not that relationship is platonic or not. This essential poem by New Zealand poet, Pearldiver is written from the perspective of finding and falling deeply in love... caught up in the rush, and in the magic found, the first time.

The First Time.
The first time we kiss
You will know what love is
How powerful, a touch can be
Why your heart will always be mine...
The first time I reach out to you
You will not know when
Nor will your body know where
My breath, my touch, will explore...
The first time that we touch
Will be electric; like falling droplets of warm water
Exploding across the nape of your neck
Intensely searching, seductively, wet...
And the first time that we kiss
Your soul will know what it is to soar
Endlessly, riding on waves of slow foreplay
This love first made, beyond your greatest anticipation
Will cry out once more, from every sense, deeply fulfilled
The first time…
