First Love - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg
I’ve been around the block a time or two.
Long since; I lost my childish innocence.
For what I lost I gained some recompense.
One of the bitter lessons life has taught.
I loved her: She loved me or so I thought.
Her practiced lies defeated my defence.
I fell because I lacked experience.
I was a toy to her just something new
to play with for a while and then discard.
I was seduced, betrayed and cast aside
to satisfy her selfish vanity.
I learned to cope but found the lesson hard.
So now I view romance suspiciously.
