When you meet that special someone that just makes you feel like you're whole...they make you feel as if finally everything in your life now makes sense...you become completed.
Perhaps all of us feel a little lost sometimes, especially in the pursuit of love. It's so easy to feel alone and like no one else wants you, but in the famous words of X-Files: "You are not alone."

I recently fell in love, and to be honest, it knocked the wind out of me! This poem is pretty much how I feel about the guy, and, well, how I hope he feels about me. Love is scary, but it's also the best feeling you could ever have!
