    It's a normal Autumn day.

    You sit alone on an old wooden bench in the park, admiring the leaves. Someone comes along and asks, "Can I sit here?" It's a chilly Winter night. You're upset. You just broke up with someone, you didn't get the job, or you failed the big test. You call them up and within...

    When Somebody Loves You Back

    Over the years love has left me exhausted due the nature of relationships, particularly due to proximity to loved ones. It has also left me exhilarated. I have found myself being swept up in a wave of emotions, the highs are wonderful, the lows, well what can one say.....For me...

    I want to be the first

    and last thought on someone's mind everyday. I want to share moments of joy and sadness together. I want to express my self to that person without hesitating about anything. I want to be loved and return the love.

    Love

    I heard a saying: "Find someone who has had a difficult life because they are the ones who know how to love." I think this is true. I would love to be loved by someone who has had a difficult life. I know I've had one too. We could heal together.

    Beauty is a useless trait.

    It's a curse. A life sentence that destines you to failed relationships, ignored genuine qualities, and sexual harrassment. All my life I've been told I was beautiful, and for a while I became really cocky after hearing it for so many times. But it subsided with time. Now, I...

    I want to be loved, held,

    kissed (passionately), I want to be made to feel special and I want to be cherished. I don't want to be treated like some broken toy or yesterdays trash. I want to genuinely be loved, not something fleeting but something that will last. That is my biggest hearts desire.

    but no one wants to take it or share theirs with me. Why am I so hard to love? I take care of my man when I'm in a relationship and I can't even get an honest, "I love you."

    My eyes close 
 and I see our first

    kiss
 when you spun me around,
 your hand landing softly on the small of my back
 the other holding my wrist, pulling me close, quick
 and your lips pressing against mine
 with such passion 
and conviction; 
I would’ve sworn you loved me

    I think everyone wants to be loved.

    It's hard though, when you grow up different. You grow up feeling unloved and worthless and you just want one person to show you your worth. To be there no matter what, to show you love....someone who'll never leave.
