first love …

i had a sunflower once
who i never watered
i thought she could survive
all on her own
one day she dried up
and withered away
my heart cried out
as the remaining petals
fell to the ground
these sunflowers
want water
attention
and sunlight to thrive
i’ll never make that mistake again
of letting my sunflower die

our first love won’t be our last, but they’ll always be our first …
