It started on a white day, before seventh block. You grabbed a seat next to me, to start table talk.   I thought you were quite bold and different, indeed.

It's 3am and I'm starting to wonder if this storm is outside my window or inside of my chest because I miss the thunder of your breath against my neck and the way your  fingers pour into me
I’m not afraid to feel again To be touched by the fingertips even though I have no idea what they have felt before Even so I want to feel your heart beat against my hand I want your voice to cover my anxieties
To look at your face And know you're mine; To hear your voice And think it so fine; To smell your cologne And know I'm safe; To kiss your lips; And know there's no haste;  
I wonder why I have to wake up to these dreams, You're a sky ful of stars that light up like sparklers, I go to sleep dreaming about your eyes that shine crystal amorous gleams.

To all those who came after I'm sorry It's not my fault Blame the first For she took the piece of me That I wish so badly I could give to you
I like to think of our relationship as a tree that grew with love. But, it was injured as a sapling but it kept growing on our love and we kept placing more pressure on the break.

I woke up with you on my mind, the same way I went to sleep. I prayed for your happiness and welfare before my own soul to keep. I've been hurt and dragged and bludgeoned to death by the bombardment of my own heart.
I was always confuse....lost....naïve.....dumb. I was always the girl to get it last. Looking back, I was blinded by love. I reached for the stars& hold onto the broken ones.
When we first spoke Without having seen your face I knew I would want you and want to be yours After talking more I fell....hard My only hope is that you would catch me
Psyched and love-struck by you Dilate, constrict Constrict, dilate My heart is just as excited as my thoughts Did I eat a love bug? Or was that the pig I roasted from under the rug?

He knew my biggest fear was falling in love. Three months into our relationship I was growing a bit afraid. On July eleventh he wore the sexiest silver shirt that made his pale skin color shout. He picked me up at five sharp.

No words Just sweet adoration Obvious attraction Simply complex ideas
A man asked me, “Have you ever found love?” I said no, but I’d like to think I did once. This man asked me, “Would you have given him the world?” I said no, but he was the only man in the world who I could trust.
