i was the first girl you loved




i may sound like drizzle
but i'm monsoon rain
the passion seeped into your bones
the love running in your veins

i'm that old cassette
you can never throw away
i'm neat whiskey
you drink after a tiring day

you've fallen in love after me
but no woman can rock your world
i'm the storm you chased
i'm the photo you burned

what if we meet again
...on cold august dawn?
would you pour wet kisses?
would you play our favorite song?

it was many moons ago
i still remember how i felt
your body weight on me
and how miserable i was when you left

but i take pride
as no one can love you the way i did
i was your 3 am phone call
i'm the first 150 pages of your manuscript

it was half-hell, half-heaven
the time we spent
it was too powerful to be true
it had to end

i bet you think of me sometimes
my memories have not gathered dust
we both know it was true
i was the first girl you loved

  2. I loved how you wrote this... There's this fire in your words... And if years later the guy reads this... That fire is going to take him down. ��

  15. You have special power with words, whether you write short two liners or long poems, they always have that magical effect.
