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.

Tati Monet: Although it was a short story I would have liked to see more detail in the writing in regards to the plot and how fast everything accelerated.

Devilma9: I loved Mario and Alexandria. Great couple. I enjoyed trying to guess who the bad guy was (I was wrong). Had a smile on my face for most of the book. Really love this series and can't wait to read them all.

Harshna Haswaani: The story had its own beautiful line. The problem loes with grammar and character development. There was a constant change between 1st person's point of view and third person's point of view. Personalities of characters can be more defined

Elsdell: I'm always complaining about werewolf stories not being original enough and always going with the whole rejection idea. Yes, this was about rejection but it blew me away - and I've always said if a writer wants to write a werewolf romance about rejection, why not turn it into an original piece? A...
