First Love Lasts Forever

I still remember the first moment
I saw you -
fifteen and football
never made more sense.

You were different.

You were the antithesis
of high school,
convention and stereotype.

You were sunlight
in the dark -
the first beat to my heart.
Everything I never knew
I wanted
standing upright.

I am defined
by that moment,
stained by it
and all of its unrequited glory.

You may be
no good for me
but I cannot let you go.
It'd be like asking
me not to breathe,
to stop my heartbeat,
never blink.

You are mine,
I am yours -
and it has always
been that way
since the moment
we met.
