First Love #1

I loved you with the intensity

Of someone with something to prove–

To the world, myself, and you–

 

As if giving my love over to you,

Showering you in its bounty,

Could make you love me in return,

Could help me lift my head

Above the rising tide of my misery,

And cease to drown,

And say

“I am me, and that’s okay”
