“I'm feeling alive all over again As deep as the sky, under my skin Like being in love, she says, for the first time Maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right Where I belong with you tonight Like being in love to feel for the first time”
(First Time by Lifehouse)


Somewhere in the heart of love

Somewhere in the heart of love Is your heart and mine Somewhere in that heart of love Each other we were destined to find Somewhere in the heart of love There are eyes we can not see And deep inside that heart of love They sent you straight to me Somewhere in the heart of love Cupid shoots his famous arrow And it will soon find its mark Traveling through the straight and narrow Somewhere in the heart of love There are things we may never know But deep in that heart of love Is were true love will always grow Somewhere in the heart of love Is a love growing just for you You may have your doubts now But someday you'll see it's true Somewhere in the heart of love Love will always find its way And will grab a hold of you And lead you to a brighter day

Narrative 5

They say that we’re too young, that we’ll never make it. But I know that they are wrong. I see the way that he looks at me, how we are two halves of a whole and I know how real this is. My parents say that we will never make, that this is just a phase. But I know that they are wrong. He makes me feel so happy, everything about us is so right. Every time I see him I get butterflies and my heart races. I feel my palms getting sweaty and my cheeks turn pink. It used to be only a crush, now it’s so much more. It has been exactly one year since the first time he told me that he loved me. To this day, I know that he still does. He helps me through everything and I could never ask for anything more. This boy is everything I’ve ever wanted and I can see myself in his eyes. I don’t know how this happened so early in my life. I feel so blessed to have found my soulmate so soon. I didn’t expect this. I thought at first we would just be friends, I had no intentions of it evolving into a love so strong. He makes me complete and I know that I could spend forever with him. At the beginning our friends said we weren’t going to last forever but we were cute at the time. We have really surprised them being so strong. I know that nothing can break us and we are a solid couple. Although, at times I worry that he doesn’t feel the same way that I do for him. It is a scary thought because if we ever split, I would be completely heart broken. But it is not worth worrying about something like that because I can see how much he loves me in his eyes. I feel so secure when I’m with him like everything in the world is perfect. I feel at home in his arms. I feel like I would be lost without him, he helps me get through some really tough days. When I feel like everything is wrong and I have no one to turn to, he is always there. I thank god everyday that he’s mine and I pray that it stays this way. How could we be so perfect? We surprisingly never fight. I guess it’s just a miracle how we always stay this way. On this warm summer evening as we watch the sunset and gaze into each others eyes, I think back on the two years we have been together and feel a tear come to my eye. He notices it and says, “Baby what’s wrong?”, and I tell him nothing, this past two years with you have been the perfect dream.


What is love? Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness.” Others say that love is overrated and not important. Personally, I think you need love to survive. Love is not only an emotion, it is a way of life. When something tramatic happens, love strengthens us and give us the will to move on. If something great happens, the one that you love is there right beside you, just as happy. Love is what powers every soul, and without it, there is nothing to live for. Love is everywhere, whether it’s between a mother and daughter, a man and his dog, a wife and husband; it gives us the will to go on. I chose to do the concept of love because it is so strong and powerful. The famous quote, “love conquers all” is true. Love can be hard sometimes, you may feel like you’ve had enough or it’s done but it never truly is. Love isn’t always perfect, nothing is but that never matters if it’s true, endless love. If you truly love someone you would give your life for them, everything you have and more becuase your love for that person will never die. If you truly love someone then you adore their flaws and make them positive.If you deeply love someone there is nothing that can get in between yhe two of you. Love is everlasting, it can endure the toughest times, and in the end it will only be stronger. Love is beautiful, and in some time or another everyone will experience it. Love is between a mother and her newborn baby, a child and puppy, a couple that has been together for 50 years. Love is undeniable, once you fall, there is no coming back; it will be with you forever. I would consider love one of the most important things in life because without it, the soul will continue on being empty.

Narrative 4

Looking at them now I know that they’re perfect for each other. I’ve known from the day they were born that they will eventually end up together. Emily and Jon were both born on April 20th, they have the same chubby little cheeks and big blue eyes. Jon is the perfect little gentleman, he always lets Emily choose which toy she wants first and he’s always by her side making sure she is ok. When they’re not together he cries and demands to see her. And when he does, his little face illuminates with joy. I don’t understand how it’s possible to be in love at the age of four but for Jon and Emily, it is a strange reality.
Lisa, Emily’s mother and I have been best friends since high school. So it is natural that our husbands are very close too. We live next door to each other and are constantly together. Which is kind of bizarre that Lisa and I got pregnant around the same time. Although kind of creepy, we loved every moment of it. If I needed someone other than Mike (my husband) to talk to I would always have my pregnant best friend next door. Our due dates were coming to a near and we were all getting excidingly nervous. When Lisa went into labor I was excited, but disappointed too. I wanted us to have our babies on the same day. Then while she was in labor at the hospital I started getting contractions also. I was nervous and excited at the same time. In the end I had the first baby, a boy. I decided on the name Jon. An hour later Lisa had hers, a girl. We were exstaic, that night Jon and Emily slept together peacefully in the bassinet. Then and there us, the four new proud parents knew our children would grow up some day and be together. Four years later and Jon and Emily are unseperable. They spend every minute together. It is so beautiful to see them together, so fresh and innocent. Lisa and I are closer than ever and we love seeing our children together; they warm our hearts. To this day I still cannot believe how their lives have been so similar. I feel as if god planned all of this out. Today the world needs more kids like Jon and Emily. They are so young but they care for each other so deeply. It can be hard sometimes to comprehend but I know that this is the way it’s meant to be. It is Valentines day and Jon and Emily are outside playing in their play house. Lisa and I decided to decorate it for them, we felt like it would be cute. They seem to like it, I can see that Emily is fascinated by the flowers. Sometimes I wonder if they will make it together as their lives go on. Only time will tell, but for now we can only hope. Jon and Emily as a couple some day could change the world one step at a time.


Endless Love is a painting by Alfred Gockel. Gockel was born in Germany in 1952. He is especially known for bright colors and the graceful motion of the characters in his paintings. This painting is romantic and passionate. In this painting there are two people, a man a women deeply embracing each other. It is one of Gockel’s finer pieces of work.
In the painting there is a chiaroscuro between the man and woman and the background which is very distinct. The emphasis is on the man and woman, together they create the scene. The content of the painting at first seems like lust, but when looking at it for a long time it becomes obvious that it is pure love. The colors here are exquisite, deep reds and oranges which bring out the figures. Also, the pigments are based around the primary color, a dark red. The red hue is very romantic and brings the sensual and alluring aspect of the painting. The shapes of the people are well sculpted and dominant, the lines and shapes that take place on their bodies really emphasize the human body. The two individuals’ love for each other is exuberant in this painting. Although their love is very apparent and sensuous, it is subtle and not too overpowering at the same time. This painting portrays the couple’s love for one another and how it is endless and very powerful.
He is so happy to see her. He walks through the front door anticipating to see how she looks. But there is no sign of her. Where has she gone? He hears her soft voice coming from their room. “Allan I’m in here.” Her voice is so sweet, she’s like a dream. He walks through the door into the bedroom and see’s her standing there. He slowly pulls her into his embrace. They share a passionate hug, as they come together as one, once again. “I am so happy to see you Maria, I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long.”

Narrative 3

Approximately 3 hours ago I was just Lindsey Johnson. Now I am Lindsey Scott. It seems as if it has been this way forever, although it’s only been this way for three short hours. This whole day has basically been a blur. I can’t even remember waking up this morning. I have been waiting for this my whole life and now it’s here.
I have finally married the man of my dreams. I knew he was the one for me the moment I laid eyes on his beautiful face. His deep blue eyes that you could just melt in and dark brown hair, the complexion of a god, his skin so smooth. He completely took my breath away leaving me speechless. Now I’ve heard about the love at first sight stories and I’ve never really believed them until I saw this man today. I never knew that it is possible to love someone you’ve never met.
I could not believe that I had lost the chance to talk to him, he is the man of my dreams. I will probably never see him again. It’s so crazy, I can’t base my life around some man that I have only seen once. But oh well, I’ll give it another try tomorrow and see if he’s there again.
I got up extra early to go to the same place I was at yesterday in hopes that maybe I’ll see this man again. I made it to the spot just in time, and he wasn’t there. I waited for two hours and saw no trace of him. Just as I turned around to go home, I had realized I was so upset I turned so quick and bumped into someone knocking me down and hitting my head on the pole nest to me. After about a minute of being all dizzy I could finally open my eyes. As I opened them I looked up and saw the same man I was looking for this morning staring into my eyes asking me if I was ok. I didn’t know what to do, I started to panic and became dizzy again. I had passed out. 20 minutes later I wake up finding myself in some strange condo on someone’s couch. I started to panic until I saw him, It was my dream man! He told me that he was so worried about me and that he was hoping that I was ok. He let me know that his name was Jared and tried to calm me. After a couple of minutes of talking he offered to take me out for a cup of coffee. I happily accepted.
Three years later and it’s finally our wedding day. I still cannot believe I just married him. It’s amazing how a twist of fate and a little bit of clumsiness brought us together. I have never met a man like Jared, he makes me so happy and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him. We were meant to be together.
Now, looking up into his eyes, as Mrs. Scott I see exactly what drew me to him in the first place. Jared is everything I could ever ask for. When I look up into his eyes I feel like we are the only ones in the world. I melt in his arms.
