    That Warm, Fuzzy Feeling

    I want someone to love me. I want to matter that much to someone, and someone to matter so much to me, that we'd risk our lives for the sake of the other. I want someone to make me cry tears of happiness when they're holding me. I want someone's arms around me, warm and safe. And...

    I ran into someone i used to know.

    I had hopes we would end up together but we never did. When he saw me. He looked twice. I looked away. He had made a noise and I turned my head to see an awkward smile. I walked off. I remember the days I felt wonderful with him. I wonder if I'll ever feel that way again. I...

    Really Loved

    By someone who could actually understand me. Know me. Someone who could care about me, show that they cared, and didn't get so upset over every little thing I do wrong. But I don't think any kind of love exists for me. I don't even know how to show that I care all the time...

    Even if I know better,

    I jump at any chance to feel loved. If someone gives me attention, I feel like it won't last and I must take the opportunity. I could easily fall into a promiscuous lifestyle, or one where I beg to be noticed. I'm just noticing this now. That's why when I was 17, although I...

    True love is hard to find never take it

    for granted and always hold on to it, if you’re not blessed with true love at the moment don’t search for it, it will eventually find you someway, somehow just be patient.”

    Need Some Love

    I've always tried to stay positive. By all accounts, I've got a million reasons to be happy. I've got a home, a loving family, and a good future ahead of me. But I'm not happy. I'm actually quite sad... I've always been something of a loner, but recently, I've realized just...

    What Is Love?

    Hold your breath for as long as you can. Now just before you pass out or gasp for breath, that desperation you feel to take a breath, imagine feeling that same desperation to see another person better off. That's Love.

    Enough Of No Love

    A wise person once said that if someone wants to be with you, they will be with you. No matter what. Thing is, he makes me feel wanted when he's here. But when he's gone, I'm a ghost. I want to run away and forget all about him, to get out now before I fall even deeper still...

    High School Sweetheart

    My mom always told me that "good things come to those who wait." This, I'm sure, is very true. The thing is that I'm a very odd person. I don't truly connect to people like most girls do. I've done it before, so I know it's possible, but the last time it happened is when I was 14...

    . why don't I feel loved when I know I am? is it because I am not loved by who I desire to love me? Is it because i don't love myself? I wish I knew why I feel so sad, alone, unloved and unwanted. It is killing me inside. God help me. PLEASE!

    All I've ever wanted was love.

    Yeah yeah yeah cliche I know right? But when all your friends have someone special in their life, I'm alone. No special someone, no boyfriend, no one to cuddle with or kiss or do fun stuff with. And friendship is cool but that doesn't fill the void.
