    I’ve loved, but never been that intensely In Love. i’m emotionally distant I guess.

    You’re taking me back to a time I had long forgotten about. I miss feeling so passionate about something. There’s something about the young teenage mind…

    Wow, I remember the same things from almost the same dates! Well written, but unfortunate that magic just seems to go away.

  • I’ve never seen this moment in time, a moment most women share at one time or another, in one way or another, stated so clearly, so eloquently. You, who are quite the woman, must have been quite the young woman. Not that you’re old, but that young woman that emerges somewhere between, say, 16 to 19, right after the first bloom of real Love. And I can just imagine what THE RACK must have been like. Wow.

  • Wow that was some awesome writing. I thought you were going to end it with how we worried our parents staying out all night and how now as a parent yourself you can see the horror that was probably their minds racing that night..I have thought of the young love thing recently and all that entailed, the euphoria the angst, oh my God the angst LOL. But I wouldn’t trade those days for nothin’.

    if we can’t hold on we can paint it and sing songs and write poetry about it, just as you did here.

    Beautifully written. I felt I was there with you. So much so that I’d like to ground your butt for worrying your parents that way. I never had a day quite like that myself – BUT I was the mother waiting at home for her errant daughter to return.

    August 05, 2008
  • Lotus, that was beautiful. That’s all I have to say.

    You inspire me!

    Favorite entry. I can’t tell you how much it meant to read that, especially at this point in my life.

    August 06, 2008
  • Wow, that’s really a great post Lotus! I guess if we ever got to love that intensely again then the first time wouldn’t be as special.

    Man, now I want some hash browns. Thanks Lotus! LOL.
