I feel like we
are oceans away
But there are times
When the tide bings
you back to me
Only for a few moments
Before the water once again
Swallows you whole

Sometimes I wish I could start from scratch
Wipe the slate clean
But then all of the things that make me who I am
Will be wiped away too

Dear First Love,

In my dreams I collect my thoughts and have no fear
I walk up to you and tell you everything that’s been echoing in my brain since you left
Ill tell you everything that’s happened and every time that I wished you were with me
But only in my dreams because in reality I know that it’s not worth my time to waste my breath on someone who doesn’t want to listen

Dear First Love,

I often think that if I
could some how
ask you one question
I would ask you what you
had expected
What did you expect
When you told me
that you were board
of me and liked someone else
What did you expect
When you came back
and told me that she didn’t like you the way I did
What did you expect
When you came to me
told me that you realized your mistake
What did you expect me to say?
What did expect me to do?

My mood changes at the
drop of a dime
What I would give to be happy all the time
There is nothing I can do
But it’s a little easier when I’m with you

I have been told that
I am hard to read
My personality fluctuates
And my emotions are
hard to pin down
I try my best to be myself
But if my friends
don’t know who I am
How can I?

Sometimes when I can’t sleep
I imaging someone’s arms around me
It’s never anyone in particular
It’s just the thought of someone’s embrace
That soothes my mind and calms my soul

Dear First Love,

Today was the first time
I’d see you in ages
We were heading
different directions
Your eyes held mine
for only a moment
But I felt as if I had been struck by lightning
I wonder if you felt it too

Dear First Love,

If I were to take all of our best moments
And make them into a film
It wouldn’t be hours long it wouldn’t even be one
There would only be a few minutes of screen time
Because most of our best moments lasted only a few short seconds

When you first met me
I was a caterpillar
I was frightened of
change and unsure what I could become    
You surrounded me in a cocoon of love and kindness
You helped me emerge as a butterfly

Dear First Love,

It’s been a month since the last time I’ve seen you
And even then I didn’t even really see you
It was more of a glimpse of you passing by
A month isn’t a very large amount of time  
But it feels like I haven’t seen you in ages
I haven’t talked to you in over a year and that doesn’t bother me as much as not seeing you for a month does
There is this weird feeling in my chest that won’t go away it’s the kind of feeling that makes you realize that maybe something is wrong

When I was younger if I started crying I would go sit in front of a mirror and watch the tears rolls down my red cheeks as my lips quivered and my nose dripped. I never fully understood why I did it then. But now when I sit at the mirror in tears and look into my reflection I see a strange beauty amongst the pain. To feel is a beautiful thing. Just like I admire my smile I admire my tears in the same way.

Dear First Love,

I don’t think I was ever in love with you.I was more in love with the idea of you.
I was of so infatuated
with the fact that I wasn’t alone, I pushed every negative thing aside. All I could think was “This is perfect.” I ignored the things I didn’t want to see.
And even now, a year later.
I’m still in love with the idea of you.

I’m a morning person through and through. I can’t help it. There is nothing like waking up to a new day filled with endless opportunities. I love getting up before the world is fully awake and sitting in the silence. It is the perfect time to think and write and dream. I sit in the kitchen listening to my coffee brew as red light filters through the windows. If only for a few moments the world is at peace.

I hope you know that
When you talk about me
Behind me back you
Are only feeding my ego
Because I must have made an
Impact on you if you still
Talk about me even though
We haven’t talked in years

Dear First Love,

I have this playlist
And every song
Reminds me of you
I play it when I’m down
All of these sad songs
Somehow make me feel ok
Because I remember I’m not theonly one feeling this way

Dear First Love,

I’m thankful for all the things you taught me. While we were together you taught me how to let someone in. When you left you taught me how to let someone go. While we were together you taught me how to care for someone in a way that I had never cared for anyone before. When you left you taught me how to care for myself in a way that I’d never had cared for myself before.

From the mountains of CO,

Driving through the mountains of Colorado is slowly becoming one of my favorite things. The evergreen trees standing tall and proud. The sun filtering out from behind the mountain tops. The clouds sitting in the low valleys between the mountains. Those clouds really are beautiful. Driving through one of those clouds was an awe inspiring experience. I took a turn and suddenly I was enveloped in mist. The world turned grey and silent. And eventually the light broke through and the world was back in its full effect. I think those clouds can be a metaphors for life. Most of your life will be happy and beautiful, but there will be these pockets of muted sadness. And the ...

Revisiting the places I’ve been with you alone is hard. Everywhere I go memories resurface. I remember how happy we were and that makes me sad. These places aren’t just places anymore.

From the mountains of CO,
  
The howling wind and the cold woke me this morning. I sat up, rubbed my eyes, and went to the window. I threw open the curtains and was greeted by foggy glass.I took my sleeve and whipped away a patch of fog.The sky was grey and snow was lightly falling.

Dear First Love,

I’m visiting the most beautiful place this week. I’m up in the mountains, there are tall evergreens and remnants of snow. It‘s cold and the wind is howling, but I’ve got a fire going inside the tiny cabin where I’m staying. I came here to relax and let go. But I still can’t stop myself from think of you. I can’t stop thinking about how much you would love it here. I can’t stop myself from wishing you were here with me sipping coffee and watching the sun rise. I can’t stop myself from missing you, no matter how hard I try.

The hour is late and once again I find myself staring into the darkness of my room
Pondering the what if’s
and the whys
But tonight is different
I’m turning of my brain and tuning out the pain
I roll over and shut my
eyes willing myself to sleep

The clouds were painted gold by the sun as it dipped behind the mountains
It was like golden foam swirling on a lilac ocean
So serene and fragile the sky looked as though it would dissipate at the slightest touch

Dear First Love,

Sometimes I feel stupid, writing letters that you’ll never read. But I’m really not writing them for you, I’m writing them for me. My feelings have to have a place to go. But I can’t tell you how I feel and my feelings can’t stay trapped inside of me. So I’ll pretend that these letters might find their way to you. I’ll write all of my feelings away in hope that you’ll read these letters one day.

At least once in your life
Take a road trip with
your best friend
Get in a car and just drive
Drive until you find a sketchy hotel and buy a room
Go to nearest gas station buy tons of food
Stay up till dawn watching old movies and pigging
out on junk food
Talk and laugh about everything and nothing
Just for one day pretend that you are the only people in the world

Small towns have
the most life
Brightly colored
shops line the streets
The courthouse stands proudly in the town square
Mom and Pops cafe
is the place to be
The newspaper is full
of achievements and
odd happenings  
A yearly celebration brings the towns people together
Small towns might be small but they have the most life
