By


Locked in the bathroom with your best friend as a witness
The words I dare you ringing in your ears
I tried to look into your smirking blue eyes
My gaze was directed elsewhere
A strong hand on my tingling lower back pulling me close
Head turned up as I went on tiptoes to reach your face
Glittery eyelids squeezed shut as my first taste of passion unfolded
Childish wonder left my body as I took my first breath
Innocence momentarily lost
But never forgotten
