Chapter 1: I meet this man, his smile lights up the room, his eyes are bright, blue & everytime he looks at me, I feel as if they peirce me deep within my soul. He's full of charm and has a way of making me feel completely comfortable around him..comfortable to be myself, comfortable to let it all go, I let my walls crumble down. I know this is love. Not puppy love, not "I think" love, but the real, butterflies, knee weakening, heart pounding, can't live without you love. He shows me that it is possible for a woman to be treated with respect and what it's like to truly be loved. He shows me that I'll never have to worry about having my heartbroken again & I'm his, all of me. I spend my nights falling asleep in his arms, sometimes on his chest, just listening to his heartbeat, my mornings waking up to those blue eyes , sweet kisses & my days with him by my side. Nothing could get better than this, nothing could ever take this away.
Chapter 2: I walk into this place, an unfamiliar place, a place I thought I'd never be. I go up to the window, place my ID in the box and sit down, taking in my surroundings. There are white walls that already feel as if they are suffocating me, a clock ticking on the wall as time creeps by slowly, the sounds of slamming doors and such a variety of people. There are whites, blacks, mexicans, mothers, daughters, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins, wives, husbands, friends..Some are used to the process, some aren't..but no matter the situation, in this room, with these people, I feel no judgement. We are all here for the same reason, to see someone we love. The time finally comes, the officers come out, the door clicks open and I'm led into a hallway that's small, but seems never ending. Three months pregnant, I rub my stomach as butterflies flutter around wildly.
