First Love

I remember fondly, a story all girls know of
The wonderful memories I have of my very first love

We started off as friends, as many others had
Being there for each other through the good and the bad

Then signs appeared and feelings arose
And very soon there was hardly anyone who didn't know

Dark ebony curls, skin colored russet wood
Made my heart beat faster than anyone ever could

We evened each other out, I was the ice to his fire
He was perfect, almost my every desire

To me he was sweet, not once sour
Not like the boys who abused their power

I felt we would be together through thick and thin
But that was before our light began to dim...

He grew cold and distant - pulled away far
My silver knight now a lonely star

As hard as I tried, I wouldn't give up
Then came the day when we finally broke up

Now we're friends again once more
Just as if it had never happened before

But when I look back on our past, it feels right to say
That he's the one mistake I'd always want to replay

This poem is based off my very first relationship. It means so much to me and I hope that it touches other people in a way that lets them cherish their first loves too.

I love this poem, especially the last couplet. I don't know what to say; your words just took my breath away. It's so powerful. I wish my first breakup ended that way, as friends. I understand what you're feeling and it's good to see that you can write it all out. Keep writing; I'd love to read more from you <3
