    Why Him?

    I'm In Pain

    When we kissed it was unlike anything I'd ever experienced before, this wasn't like normal kisses. I don't know how to describe it, it was intense, electric. I'd never been so into it. That feeling along with the fact that my chest aches right now is how I know that I love him. I...
