I watched a trailer for “Twilight - Breaking Dawn” last night and I was reminded of my love for the vampire movie. My heart raced, my eyes widened - I was excited. But now I sit here and wonder, what is it about this movie that has me hooked?
I think back to my freshman year, when they showed Twilight at the on campus theatre. I came back to my room floating. I jumped on my bed, I told all my friends: I WANT A VAMPIRE! My roommate literally asked if I was high…
Reminded of the high levels of passion I have for this movie, I still wonder, what is it about Edward and Bella that I cannot get enough of? Romance, Passion, Two Souls fighting to be as One. A never ending pursuit for the love of the other. that is truly what I long for: someone to chase after my heart tirelessly, never giving up on the chance to receive my love. Quite honestly, I believe that is what everyone’s soul truly longs for.
However with this longing, I have gone through many illegitimate means to get this love, or watered down, tasteless versions of what I assumed to be love. My search was genuine, but my results were false. I received artificially sweetened sweet-nothings that my stomach could not handle, expelled through my mouth only to leave me craving more of something that I can never satisfy. I didn’t realize that I only deeply wanted the One who bears naturally sweet fruit the whole time…
Now I know who is the One who can give Romance, Passion, the One who is fighting to be one with me, who has a never ending pursuit for my love. My entire life He waits for me to love Him, yet He has always and will always love me. My soul sincerely longs for this affection, and I am excited to say I have a romance novel better than Twilight by far: The Story of How God loved Ieshia.
I am living the best romance story ever. <3
