    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...

    To Have Loved and Lost...

    As they say, is better than to have never loved at all. To which some say 'try it.' Well... I would not be the person I am today without the experiences that shape me, including having loved greatly - and lost that love. The feeling of having that love... is like none...

    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...

    I know what it's like to feel so hopeless but you gotta stay focused. Focus on the good **** forget about the bad. Focus on the stuff you got not the things you've never had.
