Chapter 1 - Dreaming of Love

From The Book, ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''

Chapter 1 - Dreaming of Love

The Dreaming of Love stage is a territory that is often visited.  This is where people fantasize about who is the one for them. For some people who are not in relationships, they question when they will find the one.  For others who are in unfulfilled or unsatisfying relationships, they ask themselves if their partner is the one and if not, they wonder when they will find the one. 

What is the one?  People have different meanings for this.  Is it the man or woman of your dreams?  Is it just a physical connection?  Is it more than physical?  Does it involve a deeper connection such as a deep emotional or spiritual connection?  After coming across so many people and seeing different experiences, I’ve come to the conclusion that ‘’the one’’ will vary from person to person. 

People evolve and grow.  Have you ever found yourself not attracted to things that you once were attracted to?  What about the opposite, are you now attracted to things that you weren’t attracted to in the past?  Maybe you want someone taller or shorter.  Or perhaps, you’re attracted to a different personality.  Maybe you want someone who is more outgoing or someone who is more introverted. 

One common thing that I’ve seen in some people may or may not shock you. They are attracted to someone that gives them a challenge.  I’m sure this isn’t the case for every single person, but let’s face it; it is human nature for some people to want what they think they can’t have. At last we begin Dreaming of Love.

I'm Sorry For The Mixed Signals

I’m Sorry for the Mixed Signals

We met each other recently
It was a nice meet
What am I supposed to feel?
How do I know if this is true love?

We bonded so nice
You were very attractive
I can’t find anything wrong
Is this too good to be true?

I could see myself falling in love with you
But I’m an idiot, I backed off from you
I went cold and I went silent
I let fear take over and didn’t know what to do

I know you’re probably wondering what went wrong
You didn’t do anything to deserve this sad song
Maybe I was too caught up in my own dream
You were finally here and all I did was freeze

I had this idea of what my true love would be
You were very close to that reality
To be honest, it scared me
I’m in so much shock, I just can’t believe

What should I do?
What should I say?
I can’t expect you to understand
Or to give me a break

I’m sorry for the mixed signals
I was wrong
I didn’t mean to hurt you

 I’m just used to being alone
