The FIrst Time

7/23/13

The first time

was the deepest

The first time

was the worst

The first time

was the shortest

and the first time

was the hardest

only surface

not bone deep

The first time

I couldn't understand

the why or how

but then i did

I understood

it wasn't for attention

or gasping desperation

it was for the pain

The need for relief and expression

and the contemplation

of whether I should go

or stay

more a cry for help

and sturdy support

The first time

was the mistake

that led to

the addiction
