Poetry – Lightning Returns a Strike

A free verse poetry, “Lightning Returns a Strike”.

A first kiss is magical, like fireworks, or lightning. Sending tingles to all parts of the body. Do you remember your first kiss, and who it was, in the comment section below, leave me his or her name? For me, his name was Rick. I was 12. It felt like a lightning strike. My body was exploding with volumes of tingles going off like fireworks. So sweet and tender, but yet so explosive. Tell me your experience, I would love to hear about it.

You claimed, there is no passion within you;
You are lightning devoid of electricity.
You shut down feelings under layers of scars.
But I saw an untamed electricity behind
the dark disguise of eyes.
Little did you know that I held fire, smoldering embers,
that coursed through my veins.
And you were shocked when I kissed you,
your lips were seared with pain.
Sparks come from those baby blues.
And eyes wandered over my face too.
and lightning returns a strike.

Puppy love or your first crush is different than your first love too. Two hearts looking to intertwine. Our youth searching to be something more. To leave a lightning strike.

  1. Ha! You ask about that first kiss; my first kiss was a horrible, slobbery affair. I was thirteen, and a boy had asked if he could “be my boyfriend”. Having been of the mistaken opinion that I was repulsive, I was very flattered – and he was good looking – so I said yes… that’s when the kiss happened. The next ten days or so were a nightmare; didn’t have the guts to tell him I didn’t want to be his girlfriend after all, because his kisses made me feel sick. On the tenth day my family moved 200 miles away, just in time to avoid having my face dissolved by his saliva. I can’t remember his name… maybe it was John, as in dear John, or John Doe.
    I have a worse horror story about my second boyfriend, but my third one… that’s where the story should have started. He was called Dave.

  2. Wow. Nice lines. My first kiss was with a girl I was extremely attracted to, but strangely, she never made me feel anything. Needless to say, we didn’t last long. Love your stuff!
