my first true love was an online relationship,

he was older and more experienced in every way.

we met on a game and instantly clicked,

it didn't take very long until we were talking every day.


i just peaked as a teenager, with acne and high school,

while he was almost an adult and super cool.

he could drive a car and go wherever he wanted,

i was stuck with bus rides and just getting started.


we broke up after sixth months,

he wanted to stay friends but i said no and blocked him.

i broke both of our hearts at once,

and my world was grim.


i think about him from time to time, almost three years later,

he was my only love, but i know our lives are now greater.
