I Miss My First Love

    Yes, I too miss my first true love.

    Does anyone ever forget him or her? In my case, perhaps it was mutual love at first sight but more like recognition: I see you. I know it's the first time but it seems like we've known each other forever, parted, and now found one another again. It was our first year at college...

    Why Was She So Special?

    It's crazy how "first loves" work.

    Nobody takes it seriously. Your elders classify it as puppy love, your peers classify it as pure fun, but to you it's the most magical and and most wonderful feeling in the world. To be a teenager and be so infatuated and so in love with another human being is absolutely...

    I pass your house and remember the past; a

    lifetime has gone but your presence keeps me alive; knowing you still exist keeps my heart pounding; if I'm lucky I'll catch a glimpse; tears start falling attached to every moment I shared with you my beloved first love; You will be on my mind the day that I die!!

    I dreamed that he was knocking at the door, but I couldn't get to it in time. I couldn't find my shoes or a jacket and by the time I got ready to answer, he walked away. I didn't go after him.

    Everybody misses their first love!

    They are the ones who hold all your insecurities. They are the ones who you told your deepest thoughts to. They are the ones who saw you at your most vulnerable, at your very best! The only question remaining is do you wonder if they ever think of you?
