    What Is Love?

    Is love found in holding hands? In quiet whispers? In looks shared across a crowded room? Is love shared in notes? In cards? In actions? Is love felt with a quickening pulse? A feeling of loss in her absence? A longing to see but a glimpse of her? Is love heard through...

    Rapture

    There is a place for us that no one else can enter. It is a place that holds no secrets, only beauty, peace, understanding. A place that we come to, thinking we are one, only to have our souls fused together for a moment. And in that moment, I know you; every pore, every pulse...

    I liked the idea that someone,

    somewhere is made for you, forever I thought you were the one but maybe love is not a forever it seems like an eternity since I last called you mine it's a constant battle a war between remembering and forgetting because I still remember everything that you forgot I can barely...

    Isn't it sad that you hope it will happen

    and that it will at least last but you know that it isn't that easy and you know it might never work but yet you still hope that it will no matter the differences No matter what part of you hopes it will happen It isn't that easy and your heart may broke but don't be sad...

    Darkness surrounds the earth's surface,

    flowing with such grace, With such silence, that most souls never knew he was there. Though he was; stealing the young before their time, Corrupting the minds of the weak, destroying the worthy, he relished in his means. Tress lit to flames and fell to ashes in his presence...

    "Souls" When two souls fall in love,

    there is nothing else but the yearning to be close to the other. The presence that is felt through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen. Souls do not have calendars or clocks, nor do they understand the notion of time or distance. They only know it feels right to be with...

    Poetry is an image describing your thoughts

    based on a heavy beautiful emotional and colourful cement of sadness, where no one can see you even you need them to.
