I had completely given up on life.
I thought there was nothing else in my life to live for.
Then we met again.
I do not know what happened but something inside me lit up.
I could not figure out what was inside this dead heart that caused it to spark to life.
I thought I had loved the real love but this was harder to stop.
Harder more to not give into what is called the unknown emotions of life.
Then you told me you wanted me for me.
I did not know what to do.
Most of me said not to go; not to hurt the MAN in front of me.
When that faithful day came, you told me the absolute truth about loving me.
The moment my heart left my chest I had to chase after it.
My heart led me straight to you; into your arms and into the happiness I needed.
Now I sit here wondering when I will see your handsome face.
Wondering when you will be able to tell me everything and anything on your mind.
Before we got together or even met up again, I did not want a family.
There is something about you alone that caught me, my curiosity.
When your lips fell upon mine, my breath disappears like being stolen right out of me.
When you whisper my name, my voice cuts out and I cannot make a sound.
When I fell your breath on my neck, it sends boiling hot shivers up and down my spine.
When I felt your first touch of the day, it sent a feeling through my body that I don’t know.
I believed and thought why did I get chosen to experience this, but I now do not care.
Now I believe this happened for a reason but that reason I do not know either.
Like the old saying goes, “True love is one of a kind and soulmates are once in a lifetime.”
I had never felt like this before that first time I knew you were my dark prince.
I felt so many different positive sensations.
I did not know where to begin to explain.
Everything I thought about love that did not apply to me.
Then, well…I’m glad it does now.
Everything I thought about life that I would not get to experience.
Everything up to that moment of utter happiness with you, I went through hell.
From being emotionally hurt to being physically beaten for what I believed in.
From being burned by the most common things to the unthinkable kindness you now show me.
I never thought a relationship would be so kind and caring without the violence.
Now all I see is the love and kindness there is suppose to be and now I don’t care about the others.
My heart still won’t let me pick it up out of your hands and put it back in my chest.
Every time I feel your soft hands on my skin my body shudders underneath you.
Right know I can’t wait to see your face light up when you see me again my love.
When you and I get to be together again, I know it will be as amazing and as wonderful like the first.
When we get to be alone, I know you want your way with me; and I will let you.
In the beginning I was scared of what could be but now I want more of the unknown future with you.
I don’t mind having to wait for as long as I get to be beside you in the end.
The love that I have known in the past but the love I know now I want to give to you more.
Now after you have shown me what love really is, I want that family only with you.
I want that family, everything that you would like to have; each other, the family pets, the best; but most of all I want the love the care and my soulmate…
