    Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong

    era. Romance today is so different from what it should be. Romance today can often be one person looking at the other, nodding, and saying "hey" with the other doing the exact same in response. What happened to the old art of romance?

    The Perfect 4th Of July (my Scottish Lover)

    It was a very warm 4th of July. The gentle winds that always blew in the valley swept over me as I sat under a giant oak tree. With the rivers edge only a eight feet away, I sat staring at the water flowing down stream. I was thinking of how I was going to continue on....Marriage...

    I will ask how much a glass of water worth to

    you when you are in the middle of the desert. I will ask you to tell me are you waiting for dawn when you are lost in a dark forest at midnight. I will ask how much your last coin worth to you. I will ask you to take a deep breath before you go down to the bottom of the sea. I...

    Yes I'm a hopeless romantic

    but I have a really dirty mind. Which gets pretty boring if you ask me. Sometimes I just sit there and think what it would be to have someone and wish I could have someone I could play around with and love but then I remember I don't want the bullshit.

    Meeting you was fate,

    becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control.

    and that why I think I'll never find someone to live up to my standards. Which makes me feel kind of lonely sometimes.

    The last time I was on this road,

    it was by his side. Him who deceived and hurt me. I ignored the warning signs and kept on loving him like a fool, I should have known better by now. Despite all those who hurt me, I choose to believe. I believe that someday my path will cross with the person who will love and...

    Fuel me These bones are parched 
This flesh

    is starving
Craving sweet union with your essence
The furrows in your hips
The way your breasts dip
The moisture on your lips
Every ounce of you
Fuel for this unquenchable fury

    My ideal date night would be me being able to

    cook for her, and then we cuddle while watching a movie. Simple, but sweet, I think.

    Transparent to the world,

    void of substance I wait in joyous agony for my lovers return. Moments pass in hopes she will call, write, or scream me into existence once again. Her lips colored; nay painted just for me, glossed in transcendent beauty. All that I am or ever will be is defined within her...

    I remember the sweet hours we routinely shared

    embraced in our enchanted love affair. My lips surveyed your soft skin as you delighted in blissed sensation. Every curve I mapped to memory. Your delicate birth mark and moles were constellations I would navigate with amazement As you slumbered.

    maybe my failing marriage is due to the fact that i am a complete and total hopeless romantic in every way , i can't fight it , i can't deny it , i love to try and do romantic things for my wife all the time , to see if there is even a glimmer of a hopeless romantic inside her...

    While I was growing up I often saw Dad bring Mom flowers or a cheesecake for no reason but to see her face light up. And that would make him happy.Mom would do the same to Dad be it a note she'd slip in his lunch or one of his favorite desserts which he'd reluctantly share with...

    Have you ever missed someone

    so much that it actually makes you physically sick? Like sick to your stomach? Never believed in love at first sight, but I'll tell you, it exists. The second I locked eyes with that woman, I felt something I never knew existed within me. Never really knew how she felt about me...

    I've had this same problem

    now with my last few crushes. In the beginning, our texting would be fine. She would reply within a reasonable time, but as time went by, she would get worse and worse at replying until she wouldn't even reply at all. Is it a girl thing? Maybe it's me. I have no idea. I'm a...

    It was understood that they shared the same

    Beat me. Punch me in the face.

    Bite. Kick me. Hurt me. Do anything so I can see you bother. If love hurts then nothing else I want just pain. If love is a heartache then give me a big one so I feel alive.
