  • I'll never forget when we shone together in the dark. The windshield protected us from the storming rain, we were just beginning.
    Kissing and kissing in the only way we knew, in love. The stereo helped set the mood, if the rain, hadn't been enough. Normal couples would be in the backseat by now. Not us. We were just caught by each other, staring and smiling when we weren't attacking our mouths. The beat started. Slowly.
    "I love this song!" She shouted
    "No way! That's good news! It's one of my favorites" I Agreed
    ....And You Give Yourself Away,and You Give, and You Give, and You Give Yourself Away
    With or Without You...
    The rain picked up at the climax, we were screaming as if we were Bono in front of a million fans. The moment gave me chills, not from the rain but from her. She was not just my lover. She was my best friend, with her I was fearless. Without her, I could not be my best. To each other we will give ourselves away.
