First Love

First Love

A Poem by lynnsl

How much control you have, you’re not even aware

How you can make me feel, I’m swept up in your stare


I used to lie in those arms for hours; they'd chase all my troubles away

My brain tells me to let you go, my heart’s pleading you to stay


The only way that emotions escape, is through a single tear

I know you are not coming back, for that’s my greatest fear


I’m so angry, I’m supposed to be strong

I never knew loving you would turn out so wrong


I stop myself from looking in your direction

I don’t want to feel my dreaded affection


People ask about you, they ask me what I see

I simply tell them I used to love him, and he used to love me


I just fake it and hold my head high, 

try to make it and wait till I’m alone to cry


The only thing that will heal me is time, 

I have to accept you’re no longer mine
