The first Love?by Mej #Coffeeandachat #StarfishClub #PTSD #Poetry #PoetryHub #WritingCommunity #PoetryCommunity

The first love I wanted to wed

Or so I thought for I was 17

10years my elder

Yet shock my blacked out mind even then

All you wanted and we did was stay in

No laughter

Shear cold silence is louder than the tv

Ultimatums you threw my way like carrots dangling in front of this

Uni or marriage was what you said

Yet this did not show any love in its offer

For it was said in anger

Yet uni saved the day

For no man has kept me or cherished me with any ultimatum
