About the Poem

The first promises of how love will be can often be misleading, and sometimes you are left with bitter reminders of your first love - forever. Forever faced with countless painful decisions.

At First

At first, remember how you promised?
It would be soft and tender,
A loving feeling to remember.

But, instead . . .

You made me feel like a whore,
My body laid out in front of your eyes to adore.
And I wondered how this could be,
We were finally together, you and me.

I was only a piece of flesh,
No loving thing,
And that was the night this angel was stripped of her wings.

You hurt me, caused pain
And what was I to gain?
This tiny life that is inside,
When I found out I could have died.

Something that once had the chance to be so sweet,
Turned out to be nothing to you but a piece of meat.
The pain I felt,
My heart you made melt.

This pain can never be recovered,
Because I will always have a reminder of my first lover.
Something he will not see for a while.
He does not know that we made a child.

I can relate to your poem,this happen to me,and now im raising a baby,when I read your poem I cried and I hope someone else reads this b/c its not fair to do this by your self.
shocking and chillingly gripping. Love to you and the baby Angel
I love this poem. I am in exactly the same situation, but at times I still feel so alone. My husband left me when I got pregnant and he has no idea that I have the most beautiful baby girl ever. How someone can walk away from an innocent child is beyond me. I wish you the best of luck! Regardless of the loser father, your child has you and that will be enough.
Dear Marci, Thanks for sharing, your poem gave me goose-bumps and touched my heart.
Hey, that poem really let me know how I felt when I had my first love. The only thing that was different was that I didnt have a child. I really honestly loved that poem.
marci, hello. I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to you! NO one deserves to be treated like that. Never again let anyone control you and your life the way that man did. love your child with every amount of love you have. again i am sorry. be safe.
i really liked youre poem keep up the good work
This poem lies very close to my heart. recently I fell in love and was carrying my lovers child. I went out with him one night and we discussed our bright future together. three days later he disappeared, I have not seen him since. It does get easier although I couldnt face keeping our baby. my world still has many cracks even now xxxx
Wow The last line you should of heard me It was liek A huge shock Gasp thing! hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuu
this poem was so sad it made me cry
I loved this poem because it talks about a woman that has been hurt which I'm sure we all have but in this poem it sounds like we're cathing a climpse of her soul thats so hurt. The soul is very hard to look into but this poem takes us closer to the window of the soul so we can look in and not cause so much pain as the one in this poem. jania

This is a wonderful way of putting feelings to work for you. I have been there..please remember that you may now have a child to love and he has a way you have gained by this and he has lost..Love and Prayers

i'm a single father of an 18 month old baby girl and this poem really touched me...what we think is love is often masqueraded and we can't see the truth even tho it's right on fromt of us.
This was a an excellent poem, it really moved me!
This poem really related to me. It touched me in a couple of ways and it is so true!!
This was a really good poem. So many girls have gone through this. Everything you have written is so very true. Unfortunately people have to go through these harsh things in life, but we live and learn that people don't always tell the truth. They lie to get what they want. I think this was an exellent poem.
That is a very strong poem
i really believe that many teenage and beyond women of today's generation can relate to this poem and so i know that you desire my vote i see so many of my classmates and friends that's in the same situation as the young lady in this peom
This is the most beautiful and creative poem I've heard the person who wrote this has a great talent and will go really far if she keeps on writing poems like this one I love it.
I love this poem.I hope you have more
I loved this poems its all true that is the only thing that guys go for lately they dont have no respect and it was about time girls put a stop on guys playing with our feelings.our virginity is our life ones you take it away they take our lifes and its true you will always remember the first time!
it was a beautiful poem and made me think how others take advantage of our feelings and our is not always sweet as thougt to be.
Your poem was completly moving. I was touched by your words and my heart goes out to you and your child. Best wishes to you and your new life. I hope everything works out for you. Stay strong
This was a great poem, and i have to say that the end when you said that you were pregnant almost made me cry! I think you have sompthing going there, but you shouldnt make it so specific, try to fit it to everyone!
I think this poem is excellent is deep and strong. I personally Liked it ALOT!
WOW.. oh my god.. that was incredibly beautiful.. I just don't know what else to say but that.. when I got to the end, I really could feel her pain.. and it was just written so eloquently. absolutely incredible. well done Ms. Parker!
I loved this poem. It was sooo sweet.
I give this poem a big 10. I really loved it. I was so true and emotional. You are a good writer.
Very deep, very moving. While reading it, I see what you saw, feel what you felt. On reflection, this poem reflects my own pain and worries (except for the pregnant bit). :-)
