    I Am Not a Pacemaker...

    If I want someone, my heart beats wildly, I get dizzy and long to touch them. I love them and want them to see me. How and why should I control who I wish to be in love with? That's certifiable.

    Fallen

     I can't believe I fell for him. I promised myself that I wouldn't fall in love with him because I had been hurt so badly before. We promised each other that we would stay as friends and that we would someday part. He even warned me that he can only hurt those around...

    In Front Of A Fireplace...

    I dream of nights like this..   Outside, it is a frigidly cold winter night.  Inside, the room is illuminated only by the soft, flickering glow of candlelight.  Under a cozy, comforter, you and I are snuggled near a warm fire that dances wildly in a...

    Heart Rules ...

    It's impossible for my head to rule my heart.  It's probably not wise, nor sensible to be this way but my heart rules me, that's just the way I am.  Even though I can argue with myself that I know I'm being ridiculous or that I know I'll only get hurt in the end ... it...
