The story behind the poem
This poem is very personal to me,
and I must admit I hesitated a little before submitting it to a public
forum. This is just about losing (or choosing to give) something that
is very precious ...your virginity.
It happens to most of us at some point in our lives, but I feel on
reflection that I was much too young when it happened to me. The young
lady, who shall remain anonymous, was the same age as me but was much
more mature and developed. Afterwards my young mind was beset with
doubt and confusion..., on the one hand I felt that I had done
something adult and manly, but on the other I just wanted to run home
to my Mum and Dad and sit quietly on a couch hoping they couldn't
notice anything different about me.
The first time is seldom the best ...but it seems we never forget it.
