My First Love

I know for now we parted ways and I wish the best for you
I hope deep down you really know that all my love was true
I don’t care what other people say, I think you were falling too
I know they’d never understand, unless they stood in my shoe
Cuz baby from my perspective everything was going great
I truly thought that we were brought together by fate
I still believe our love exists, I just think you’re afraid
I don’t blame you for losing faith, I know you’ve been betrayed
Trusting someone is always hard, you gotta no the bad from good
I don’t think your a bad person, just very misunderstood
I know you didn’t mean to hurt me, and I will never hold a grudge
I’m not like the others that label you, I’m not one to judge
After all your disappointment, you’re scared to let someone in
All your hope for love is gone, so you don’t let a new love begin
Because we got so close so quickly, you ran before you could get hurt
You realized that giant wall you built was caving in, so you became alert
I know you were intimidated, but I would never make you sad
I always wanted to see you smile, to make you feel so glad
You acted like a cocky player, and always hid your scar
But I know that it’s all a mask, that’s not really who you are
Behind that shield of male bravado, theres a sweet and sensitive guy
A man thats yearning for true love but’s too afraid to try
Loving someone is a risk, but no risk, no reward
When you feel those feelings babe, they cannot be ignored
You dwelled on your imperfections, and thought you weren’t good enough for me
But the truth is only you felt that way, with you I was as happy as can be
I guess for now you need to figure all this out on your own
One day you’ll see everything clearly, everything I have known
If theres one thing I can tell you, something you should always know
Something that you need to understand, in order for you to grow
Life is tough, so just be strong, but there’s always a bright side
True love is so precious and rare, so when you find it don’t run and hide...

i love your writing, read em all. you the best of the best. i love writing cuz you can become anyone you want, forgeting for a moment that things aren't going as you planned. but whenever i write i can't seem to leave out the anger so my stuff is sometimes dark to tell you the truth kinda depressing. that's why your comment made me happy when you said my poem made you laugh. it'd be cool if you could give me some advice on my other work, don't sugar it plz! ;D
