Romance Novel Memories, Plus a Reader Poll!
Do you remember the first romance novel you ever read, or even which romance story in a film, that made you ‘swoon’?
As a child I’d always been swept away by the tales of Snow White, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. And romantic comedy movies were wonderful! While I was growing up, I savored the Mary Anne/Logan couple dynamics in The Baby-Sitters Club book series.
Being a writer and a bookworm at heart, however, I must be true to my passion. The first romance novel I remember being simply thrilled with was Annette Curtis Klause’s The Silver Kiss. I was browsing my library at school. I think was about twelve or thirteen. I had just finished two other reads, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle (YA historical), and Say Goodnight, Gracie (YA fiction/drama).
I needed a change, something altogether…

Hi, readers! April is here again! 🙂
To celebrate National Poetry Month, I decided to write a romantic poem, inspired by my relationship with my fiancé. Here it is:
Miles of Our Memories
A special anniversary approaches…
How many times have we crossed these miles?
More than I can count.
Distance separates us again this year,
but I know it will turn out all right.
I miss your arms wrapped around me,
your special scent in my nose.
I miss our unique closeness,
the quiet talks in the night as we lay there,
absorbing breaths and heartbeats.
I miss gazing at you across the table of a romantic meal,
even laughing as we dodged the puddles of a parking lot.
I miss the experiences we shared for years.
Surely we can get some of that back?
It has been too long, my love, since we…
Sat in a dark theater, hands entwined,
Strolled through a mall, pointing out the wares,
Tossed a ball down a lane, hoping to miss the gutters,
Had a picnic, chatting about all those simple things in life,
Went on a walk, hand in hand.
It has been far too long since our hearts were so connected, and we surrendered to the glee inside us.
For tonight, let’s cast aside our obligations.
Say you’ll travel with me to the stars and beyond,
where time doesn’t interfere with its incessant, haunting chime,
when we can be us again.
Join me and we’ll find our bliss,
a reprieve from the madness.
I know one day these chains of clock and mile won’t bind us,
and we can be free.
I live for the moment when I am yours,
tied with paper and mirrored hands.
We’ll confront this world together,
and then blend into a perfect union of well-matched souls.
I love you and miss you…
Yet I’d wait forever if the fates tried to keep us apart.
Nothing can break us, I swear.
We are stronger than the mere miles that threaten to split this bond.
And I am always,
© 2019, Marie Lavender.
