    You Showed Me

    In all the relationships from my past, I thought I was possibly experiencing love. I would give myself to that person, almost in a act of sacrifice, laying my heart at their feet. I would hope for some kind of acknowledgment - some sign that they accepted me - and when it was...

    Often Wondered...

    I spent years wondering exactly how love feels. Does it feel the same as if you were in lust? If not, what is it akin to?... I think I know the answer. I think it feels like you are happy most when you're around them, and you want to share your lives and dreams. It is a feeling...

    It's A Feeling Of Natural Motivation...

    ...or SOMETHING like that. I am not in love right now and that makes it hard to define by memory. I am wondering if I'll get the feeling ever again, and that bothers me. There really is nothing to compare it to. For me, it's the longing to be together when apart. Anticipation...
