Pubescent Love Poem

I wonder what happened
to Justine C
I wonder if she thinks of me
I fell for her innocently
And she felt something good
About me

We’d sit together we could
In double history once a week
Hip to hip, never saying a word
Though we shared
Our secret world

I was slim, searching and fast as a cat
She was blue-eyed, 16
clever and happy-go-lucky
with puppy fat

For a term we acted this play
Till in class she kissed me that way
Then said “We cannot be one”
My life wasn’t ready
To come undone

And soon I’ll be forty-three
And so will she
I wonder if she thinks of me
I wonder what happened to
Justine C.

  1. awwwwwwww!!!!!!!! I love it!!! I wonder what ever became of my little blond headed Ryan, too! Thank you for sharing this with me! Oh, and I love “puppy fat” …great choice!

  2. Ha ha there was plenty of puppy fat and acne too, but I don’t think readers want to hear about that :) Really liking your blog, it’s provoked many smiles.
