My First Love
Hillary Thornton was my first love,
When I say first love I mean,
I fell passionately in love with her,
But she could not return my love.
I was in my last years of primary,
Yes I know I was young,
But I believed you could love at any age.
My two best friends,
Were Adelaide and Hillary,
Adelaide Carr and Hillary Thornton.
Hillary was a gorgeous girl,
With deep brown eyes,
And long, straight, dark brown hair,
Sometimes worn loose with a hairband,
Sometimes tied back in a ponytail.
She was so accomplished,
She played the recorder,
And had a soft, silvery voice.
Even at the age of nine or ten,
I was fine with same sex love,
In fact my aunt had a candy; Lebkuben Hearts,
I used to call them Lesbian Hearts.
I told my friends of my attachment,
Eventually Hillary herself,
At the time she freaked out completely,
I could not think why,
I had never asked her to return my love,
Unless she could.
I actually loved her for many years,
Until I was twenty one in fact,
I initially intended,
To be like Heathcliff or Sonya Rostova,
In my love for Hillary Thornton.
