First Catch

by Ren   Nov 1, 2016

In the beginning,
A series of quick glances,
Reel me in.
Leaving me,
Unable to surface,
From drowning in your gaze.
And even when,
You decide to leave me,
Treading dangerous waters...
I find it almost impossible,
To release the hooks,
You embedded so deeply within me.
Scarring me for life,
To forever and always be,
Your First Catch.

    Ren, I really liked this a lot. You never forget your first love and every relationship always seems to leave a mark. I like how you compared this to being hooked and scarring. Well done-

    Hello Ren,

    I like the fishing metaphor used in this piece - very original.
    I guess it can feel like you are hopelessly hooked sometimes, especially in the case of love and even when those hooks are released, the scarring never really goes.

    Well done,
