First Love

(First Heartbreak)

My first love was

Eyes seeing me when

The rest of the world

Didn’t notice me

Standing in the shadows

🥀

My first love was

Genuine laughter and

Pointless conversations

That meant everything to me

🥀

My first love was

Greetings in hallways and

Waves across crowded rooms

🥀

My first love was

Mumbled words

And shy smiles

Lit up faces and

Constant daydreams

🥀

My first love was

My first heartbreak

Sleepless nights

Blurry eyes

Shaky smiles

And eyes looking

At the ground

🥀

My first heartbreak

Was sad songs

And blankets at midday

It was insecurities

And emptied hope

🥀

It was shattering hearts

And poisonous thoughts

Lightless stars

Oceans of tears

And love letters

Stuffed into dusty drawers

🥀

My first love

Was the person

I thought you were

And my first heartbreak

Was the person you

Turned out to be

🥀

You were a daydream

That was never real

A home that burnt down

A memory that never mattered

And a butterfly flying

Just out of reach

🥀

You are the scars

On my heart and

The hesitation in my words

When someone asks me about love

🥀

You are my demons

And my fears and

The silences that

Suffocate me

🥀

My first love and heartbreak

Were my darkest days

And the overwhelming idea

That I was not enough
