My First LoveI was 12 and she was just a few months older. I saw her and I fell in love with her.
I think at that age you don't know that much about life yet, especially about love. But what I felt then was undeniable and I have never felt anything like that since. I have had "crushes" since, and if I hadn't experienced that first love I would have probably thought that those crushes was like being in love. But it cant begin to compare.
I remember little things, not everything. I don't even remember a lot of conversation but I remember the feeling I had and what it did to me very well. I remember a necklace she bought me with her name on it, in the shape of a heart. I remember some of the notes she would give me. She would put a lipstick kiss on the note, and the notes had a distinct smell that was just heaven. I guess she put some of her perfume on it. Even months later the notes would still smell of her. How I wish I still had some of those things from back then.
We were together for about a year and a half. At the end that feeling of being in love was just gone, it was nothing that happened nothing she did or said, that feeling just went away slowly. I guess it cant stay that strong for that long. You somehow get used to it and it dies out. In the end I just cherish the whole experience.
