Remembering the first.

Now, long after time has lost its patience, I discover that first loves cannot be forgotten. You only think you've let go, till reasoning blows up in your face like a cruel joke. The state- irony. The effort - futile. The feeling - forever.

Sorry - not only should can they be forgotten, I've learnt that it is often-times best that they are.

Actually, I must rephrase - nothing can ever be truly forgotten, memory just is. However, it is an ecology of information and nothing more, so you can indeed change your perceptions on how you view that information. While the memory may remain, you need not necessarily perceive it as love any more. ;-)

I'm not sure about that. Your 'first love' is the first time you feel something like that right?

What if you feel the same way again, or stronger the second time around?

I'm just throwing stuff out here, not trying to trample on your tender memories.

I see it like the first time you eat a mutton puff. Sure the taste is incredible and it blows your mind but then along comes another mutton puff and this one's hotter, tastier and crispier. What do you do?

What I'm sayin is I agree with metlin.

Metlin the wise. :) First loves do not go gently, but the cool thing is, one day you fall in love again, so hard that you realize the first time was just a dress rehearsal. I hope for you when that happens, it's the right person. :)
