The Best Come in November
By Vanessa, age 17, South Carolina
I asked myself, why November? Believe it or not, I always fall in love in November. When I fall in love it feels like a dream that I'm living. Last year, I said to myself, "I need a relationship." But I couldn't do it because I've always played boys because I was afraid they would do that to me. Relationships? Well, it's hard to make one last. But nobody knows when love is going to knock on their door.
One night in November of 2009, I met this guy on MySpace. We started chatting, and we stayed on MySpace chatting for hours. When I looked at the time it was midnight, and I knew that I had school the next day. We started texting and getting to know each other. Days passed, and our conversations started being longer than ever. I had thoughts about him racing through my mind in every way. I wanted to talk to him all the time. I wanted to know more about this guy because, for me, he was the nicest boy I'd ever met. I never thought that I would fall in love with someone that deeply. Love came to me without warning, and it hurt because I wasn't prepared for it.
What I felt for him was more than I could understand. It was crazier than my first love. We had many obstacles in our relationship. We were both players and I couldn't trust him with my heart. Then one night he told me that he changed because of me, and he would do anything to have me in his life. That just made me happier. That's what he did for me. I loved him with all my heart just because he showed me that he really cared about me.
I don't know if all girls feel this way, but when a boy makes you feel special you really fall for him. Our relationship was the best relationship I ever had. I wrote poems about him - how much he meant to me and how I much loved him. I always think of him when I'm writing because he was the one who inspired me to write. I still love him even though we broke up. He still remains in my heart, and I believe he will stay there forever. He is the best, and he came to me in November.
