  1. My Take On Love

    You look at the person standing in front of you and you know somewhere deep inside that this is the one. Not mere physical attraction, a deep inner knowing that this person completes you, filling that place you held empty just for him or her. They compliment every aspect of you, you are different in so many ways but its that difference that makes them so right. Your weaknesses are their strenghts, and together you paint a complete picture, all harmony, all substance, balancing each other.

    As your time together lenghtens over days, months and years, its not all perfection but the imperfections are lessened because you two share the same space, your lives intertwined, growing, the bond makes you both better in every aspect. You cherish each others triumps and when the little setbacks happen, you feel your compliments pain as though it were your own.

    You make love in that way that only true lovers do, simple conversations become expressions of your love your words chosen just to bring you closer, the little things you do for the comfort of the other, that slight touch as you brush against each other, that special look you reserve just for this person you hold so dear. All this only makes the physical act of love making more passionate, you sample each other like a fine wine or an exquisite dish you've tasted for the first time, each and every time you come together.

    You admire the beauty of others but no beauty compares to this person you've given your soul.
