Love on Both Sides
by Heartbroken Alli
It started out with a song written by a boy, not yet a man. Told me I was perfect, beautiful, and everything else that you are told when a boy loves you. The boy who had fallen in love with me was sensitive, God-fearing, and funny.
I think I loved him back but wasn't sure. I knew that he had loved and liked other girls in the past. But he got over all of them. I secretly hoped he wouldn't get over me because I didn't think I could get over him.
He did move on but only because he thought there was no hope for us together. He told me about this other girl. She was smart, a beautiful singer (which he loved because he was a songwriter), and hot (in his eyes).
How could I compete? Still, my close friends and I noticed that he seemed to like me. One friend even heard him say that if he couldn't have her, he would have me. I jumped at this news, but at the same tip, I bit my lip. I needed to decide to love him or drop him.
I still think about him but if he wanted someone more than me, then there isn't love on both sides. It's time to move on, but I will always keep this memory of my first love.
