    So Much It Hurts

    I've said this before and I'll say it again: I know I'm young but this longing is so profound I physically hurt. I dream of finding a love. I want someone to hold me. I want someone to want me. I want someone to need me like I need them. I want someone to look into my eyes and...

    All the Time

    Love is something I've always longed for, and will always long for, even now that I have found the one who's able to give it to me. Whenever he's not around, whenever I'm not getting the chance to speak to him for a while, I long for his way of loving me. I always long for him...

    This Is Two Part Really...

    I have a lot of Love from my true friends and from my family and from my daughter. Maybe Someday I will have someone to fill the void that I feel like I'm missing. Some days I am content with the fact that I am a single mom and feel like I could go to eternity without a man in...
