I think a person’s first love is the most pure, concentrated love there is. There’s no past heartbreak, and all they can think about is how good it feels and how they never thought they could love someone so much. The sad thing though, is that it rarely lasts. First loves are so bittersweet. First love is followed by first heartbreak, and I’ve heard that it can be the most difficult of all the heartbreaks one might endure. It’s like all other heartbreaks will leave scratches and scars on your heart, but the first one leaves a deep and painful gash that you’ll always remember.
She looks sad. She looks angry. She looks different from everyone else I know—she cannot put on that happy face others wear when they know they are being watched. She doesn’t put on a face for me, which makes me trust her somehow.
