My First Love
I speak the words that keep my demons at bay
And feel the stillness that envelops me every time I pray
Too long I've been in shadows
I've forgotten what light feels like
My first love.

Far too long I've let fear darken my foolish heart

Not a sheep amongst wolves, but a wolf from the start
Preying on innocence, shedding blood
There is shame in my heart
For I have betrayed
My first love.

I've wandered so far and slaughtered my soul

Become so ragged and the breaths I draw are cold
Can I find my way back home?
I pound at the gates
Of my first love

Can I fall into the arms

Of my first love

All the human beings, in fact, finally revert towards God for First/Last Love, The Eternal LOVE for ever ...

So, there is no doubt that you are so true in your expressions...when we get hurts, then we ultimately finds the God's love too.. which never stops to coming our ways but these are we who close our eyes for some cheaper "timely" loves for ourselves here... :)


May God bless all of us..ever.. Aaameeen

I think it would be better if you did not repeat the phrase, "first love” at the ernd of this poem:-

"Can I fall into the arms

Of my first love"


Would it not be better if you made it clear that the poem is addressed to God rather than to some earthly lover.?


So perhaps something like:-


"Can I fall into the arms

Of my Divine Saviour"


Just putting in the capital letters makes it clear that the first love is God.
