Aside from the first story I wrote when I was 12, I was mostly fond of writing love poems. I was a hopeless romantic, and would always find ways to channel all my ~feelings~ into words. This was one of my early ones. I wrote them when I was 15 years old. Here is the poem in its original, raw form.
Once in my life I met someone like you
You were so friendly, so cool, and true
I’d never thought we’d be good friends
But I guess that’s the way it happens
Even before we met
I knew there was something in you I won’t forget
Your lips, your smile, and your eyes
Above all, the kindness you showed me
Then I realized
I was falling for you
And now I’m wondering what I’ll do?
I wasn’t expecting to have this feeling
Coz I never knew what was coming
Looks like Cupid’s arrow struck my heart
And it’s like he really struck it hard
Now I’m kinda getting freak out
When it’s you they’re talking about.
When you said you wanna be with me
I don’t know if that could possibly be
We’re miles away from each other
But you know, it doesn’t really matter.
You were right when you said
Nobody understands the reason why we met
But we know right from the start
God put us together, to be friends by heart
Friends? Yeah, friends
But is it there where it ends?
I don’t know
Other says, in friendship love starts to grow
Now I’m getting totally mixed up
Then my wee heart shouted, ‘hey, wait up!’
‘If you really love him, you’d have to wait
Coz love has its time, it’s never too early, nor too late [11:32 PM]

And so I have decided,
This feeling of mine ought to be guided
[12:31 AM 05/31/04]
Coz if we really are destined to be together
God will never allow to part us, ever! [9:41 PM]
