My First Love-Personal Narrative
I once jumped off a two-story building just to prove how much I adored a girl. At the early age of eight, I have to admit that I was already a kid full of hormones. I have always known that I am attracted to the opposite sex. I love being around them, but I was always too shy to express my feelings towards them. Sandra was the kind of girl that any guy would fall in love with the minut he laid his eyes on her. Like a goddess, she had long silky hair, big sparkling eyes, and the most luscious lips. The first time I saw Sandra was on the first day of my first grade. I was immediately attracted to her. She was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen at that point of my life. I knew right at that…show more content…
I immediately called for God and I begged the Almighty to have Sandra sit next to me. When I heard Sandra and my name in the same sentence, I knew in that moment that God answered my prayer. Sandra and I were both voted to be the class president by popular votes. I am very shy. Yet, I have this personality or look that just attracts people to their liking. Sandra was also very popular mainly due to her beauty. Because it was a close race, the teacher decided that Sandra and I should both be the class president. The class president's duty was to keep the class in an orderly manner whenever the teacher was not around. We would hear students' complaints about other students and help keep the peace in the class. Because of the seating situation and our shared responsibilities as peace officers, Sandra and I got to be very close. However, we were only best friend and nothing more. I never told Sandra how I felt about her but I think she figured it out somehow. I also had a friend named Nick who was also attracted to Sandra. Nick and I never had a problem both liking the same girl. We often goofed around and told each other what we would do if Sandra were to be with one of us. Although Nick was better looking than I was, that did not stop me from giving up. I knew I had to find a way to tell Sandra how I felt about her even if she already sensed it. One day while playing on the roof of our classroom as we often did, Sandra commented that a
My First Love
In everyone's life there are different experiences; one of them is the first love. My first love was dazzling yet aching. Every time I go back to those memories, my eyes water and I feel like I could have done so much better. My story began six years ago, when I was only eleven. I was inexperienced and naive; I thought that there was no heart break in this world.
It was a Saturday when I first saw him. His brown caramel eyes made my heart skip a beat for I had never seen anything so breathtaking. His skin was a russet color and his hair was a shady black. That first moment when we saw each other is engraved in my head. I can still hear my heart throbbing loudly in my chest as his eyes landed on me in that small room. We stared at each other as he made his way to the seat in front of me and a smile flicked on his lips to seal that moment.
It took a year for me to talk to him; we became best friends but nothing more, nothing that I wanted. His life was mine, his thoughts were mine, he was my world and he didn't even know. Everyone said that we had something between us, he always laughed because he never notice how I shatter every time he notice someone else, but what really destroyed me was the day he broke the news that he was leaving and maybe never coming back.
Years passed and I never heard from him and because of that, feelings almost vanished along with him but there were still memories hunting me for what I once felt. Now that he is back, it is he who looks for me, it is he who begs for my lips after that one time our lips met for a first kiss, it is his heart that breaks, for I once promise myself that I would not drop another tear. As much as I want him vanish from my life again he would not go, and every time he's back I fall in to his arms becoming that delicate girl that I once was.
My love for him is like the waves in the sea, it comes and it goes. His name is now carved in my soul for he is part of who I am now. He made my cry but he also made me laugh. He was my first love and as much as I want that part of my story to end, deep inside I know that it isn't over.
