Favorite Quote:
"Before you, my life was like a moonless night. very dark. but there were stars-- points of light and reason. and then you shot across my sky like a meteor. suddenly everything was on fire. there was brilliancy, there was beauty. when you were gone, the meteor had fallen over the horizon. everything went black. nothing had changed. but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see stars anymore."

You remind me of a beach.
You're like a sunset;
beautiful & breathtaking.
Your heart is like the sand;
warm & nice,
something I want to bottle up
and keep forever.
We're like the waves;
building up, falling,
and getting back up again.
Then, at times,
calm & peaceful.
Our love is like the palm trees,
growing & growing
more with time...
Hanging over the beach
like it hangs over us.
You're like the sun;
bright, happy,
but sometimes hiding behind the clouds,
afraid to let yourself show.
Then you let yourself shine bright
when you're with me,
but then it storms,
and rain comes falling
down on us...
Then you hide again,
and go off into the horizon
until it clears.
Our relationship
is like the sunset;
beautiful, colorful,
I hope you won't disappear
into the horizon,
with the sunset.
It needs to stay at the beach,
with you

The author's comments:
In English one day, we had to write a poem about a picture we saw. I got the picture of a sunset on a beach, with one palm tree, slightly hanging over it. It inspired me, and this is what came out.
