Young

Rating: 3.0
I tried, and each attempt was a fiasco.
I yearned, but every love of mine was wrong.
I needed, and the shame was overwhelming.
I failed, and so I hated being young.

This is so the voice of every young man, dreaming of what would be. I have been with 34 women during my lifetime. Some people believe that since I remember them well enough to count them that I am simply bragging or putting notches on my bedposts. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I can count them because I do indeed remember each and every one of them. And I remember each of them simply because each of them, in their own time, was the most wonderful and incredibly special thing that ever happened in my life. Well, I am asked, how can they all be the most special? I don't know. But they are. That is what I see - sort of, in your poem Jonathan. Pretty cool.
