My First Love, Because of You

My First Love, Because of You

Blazing heat,

Scorching fire,

And freezing winter snow.


You took me up

To the mountaintops,

And deep into the valleys bellow.


I smiled and giggled

Like never before.

Because of you.


Mischievous butterflies

Fluttered from within.

Because of you.


My face turned red as a rose.

My heart warmed and glowed.

Because of you.


I had never known

These strange feelings were possible.

It's all because of you.


You took me by the hand.

You led me home

And held me in your perfect arms.


You told me I was special,

Told me I was beautiful,

That you loved me…


But you fed me lies.

You turned on me

And left me far behind.


I see it now.

I saw it then…

I ignored the truth.


You were a roller coaster

Of emotions.

And I fell for the ride.


I thought I could live that way.

I was wrong.

I could never stay.


You did me wrong.

You took from me

What cannot be returned.


Now I weep at night

Just to glimpse sweet sleep.

Because of you.


There's an ache inside

I all to often knew.

Because of you.


My mind won't let go.

Every sight brings back memories.

Because of you.


But I'm slowly healing,

Learning to move on.

And it's all because of you.


You shattered my desires.

You made me tingle to my toes.

I knew my first love…because of you.

jessiehs: This was absolutely amazing. I loved how it went back and forth between perspectives. I actually cried at the end I was so happy. This was amazing. I can't even think of another word to describe it. Thank you for writing his.

Pilleip: This has been a bit different genre from what I usually read but a real delight. I like the vamps being different from cliche. I like the intriguing and unpredictable plot and the quirky characters. The only complaint I have is that I want to read more but the book run out. I hope there's going t...

star_powered: Off Pitch is a fun and sexy lesbian romance filled with incredible humour (one of the few stories that has ever made me laugh out loud), heart-wrenching drama, and lots of fluff. The story respects and normalizes the wlw experience and doesn't resort to victimizing the main characters for plot de...

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

KC_Ward: Black Mark was one of the most interesting romance novels I have read. I really enjoyed the fact that Mora has such a strong character and held her ground. Each character had a background story that gave clues as to what shaped their personalities. This novel was almost like two books rolled into...

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.
