Young Love

I saw a young couple on the bus the other day

And knew right away what my eyes was beholding

Young love

His arm around her

Her snuggled into his side

The intense conversation

Hanging on to each others every word

The shared giddiness as they find each other totally hilarious

The game of cat & mouse played

In search of one common goal

A simple kiss

Young love

Seeing it makes me remember

What that used to feel like

The innocence

The sincerity

The freeness

The pureness

I miss that time

Miss that feeling

I envy them

And their young love

Another well said poem. I wrote one on here about the same thing. (Young In Love) They say great minds think alike! And may I add one quote along with Jlew's? "A diamond is made brilliant by friction. So too is a person's character."

Your moniker serves you well. I love your poetry and when you revisit them and work out minor nits, these diamonds will shine even more brilliantly. Keep writing and posting. Keep improving. And remember, diamonds were once soft as graphite, simple carbon. But after extreme pressure, what was once soft becomes the hardest thing on earth--and the most beautiful. Pace et amor amicus, John
