I pledge myself to you, my love,
My life is no longer my own,
My afterlife is unknown,
If I'm fortunate, If I'm adequate,
If I'm to be in the heavens,
I'll plead for my home.

Your eyes are my home,
Your breath is my air,
Your voice is my song,
Your arms are my shrine,
Your heart is my altar,
Your smile is my prayer,
Your hand is my prize,
I ache to make you mine.

I need you in every way,
 My rib is not in place. 
 My certain heart calls you,
 My present, my future, my solace,
 My first and last, my onliest love.
 My other self, my life,
'I love you ' is not enough.

So far your first chapter has a really good flow and is heart warming. I feel sad for Melody already. Good job. Also the poem you wrote is really good. Keep writing.

The first chapter was quite intriguing. Great job! I'm sure this will turn out to be one of the bests I've read so far. I'm already taken with the girl. All the best! 👍

Most people prefer shorter chapters. I'm loving the plot so far! And your writing style is amazing, too!
