The first time your midnight dark eyes melted with my sky blue ones,
I felt it.
And to this day, no one has ever looked at me with the same intensity.
I think I became a woman in that one heart-piercing instant.
And our hearts, souls, and minds have forever since been intertwined.
I needed what you gave me.
The confidence, strength and willfulness that leaves you breathless.
You are a friend.
Yet the looks that pass between us are a telling clue
To the fierce and passionate closeness that I have always had with you.
I know what I do to you, in friendship and in lust.
And that urge is your hold on me, your intensity.
Being with you is like laughing, crying, living and dying.
And yet with all that uncertainty comes a sense of comfort.
It will always be like this.
Neither circumstances, nor time will ever break this connection.
That moment, this feeling, and your presence
Will be in my mind, heart, and soul forever.
It has undeniably become a part of me - my essence.
The essence of this woman is a secret
To those closest to her.
Except for you.
I am so grateful for your intensity.
You can see what all it has done for me.
