First love

I thought it was the end
of my journey
when I finished with you
but oh!
I was a fool
because your end
was the beginning of something new.

You were gone but left me
with invisible scars
you started an addiction
and ah!
how sweet it was
our time together
you were my first intoxication.

My first book
forgive me when I confess
that you are not my favorite.
but always remember
years have passed, yet
I haven’t forgotten
how I felt getting lost
in the swirling ink
of your many words
printed
on the crisp pages.

You are not my dearest
but you are
my first love.
