Remembering Love
By Lady1Venus

* * * * * * * *

As I sit up on stage,
On graduation night
I remember my first love, Neflite.
He was a warrior of the Negaverse.

Throughout the evening,
I think back to when Neflite was alive
He was always kind and gentle to me.
Even when he had used me.

He died in my arms
From saving my life.
I was so sad when he died,
I didn't think I could live on.
But I did.

After Neflite died,
I started to go out with Melvin.
He was nice and kind
But he could not fill the empty void in my heart.

Not long after I started high school,
I broke up with Melvin.
It was tough on him
But I couldn't live with the lie any longer.
My heart belongs to Neflite, now and always.

I don't think I'll ever love again.
I'm too afraid I might forget him.
Or worse yet, I'll betray him.
I wouldn't be able to live with myself, if I did.

As the graduation comes to a close,
I look out into the audience.
There sitting behind my mother,
I see a man who resembles Neflite
But how can that be, Neflite is dead.

As the graduates start leaving the stage,
I ignore the man who looks like Neflite.
No sense in ruining my night,
People will think I'm being foolish.
