Veni Vidi Amavi - Three words that mean so much..
I met you when I was only a child, I had so much growing up to do. I knew nothing about myself.. God, I knew nothing.
I only knew that I loved you. God, I loved you so much.
When you're young and say you love someone everyone says "It's just puppy love". Or "You don't even know what love is".
Did I know what "love" was? Probably not.
But for me, it was always you.
8th grade, 13 years old a pale freckled face girl just standing in front a bushy haired boy asking him to love her back.
I was young, but I would have followed that boy anywhere.
It nearly took the breath out of me when he walked away.
I still remember the sin of his lips when he kissed me good-bye. I knew it wasn't a "See you later, kiss". It was a "I'll always miss you" kind of kiss.
Years and years have gone by.. the only thing I know for sure is. It was real.
Veni Vidi Amavi - I came, I saw, I loved.
