"For late night train trips, leave you wanting to come back for more"

She's the kind of girl, a guy would write poems about,
Like a streetcar named desire...
I ain't no liar,
For this girl's got me head over heels.

The way she has a finger-painted smile,
That I could stare for a while-
And never once wonder how much long it's been.
If liking you is a sin,
Then I'd rather be damned.

For her soul creates fires,
And even if I'm tired,
I'll answer every call-
Make every trip,
Take every hit it'll take,
Just to see her.

She's the kind of girl,
You can't see life without.
The kind of girl you cheese in a photo with and can't help but smile on the walk back home

For every smile is a is a bright light.
For meeting her made my night.

Having late night train trips to make you come back for more...

She's a mystery-
The kind of girl you'd spot in a crowded room and you'll just know...
She's special.

For girls like her are hard to come by.

Relationships aren't perfect. They can be painful and aggravating. They can be problematic and detrimental to our mental health.

Of course, relationships require a great deal of time and commitment to maintain, but if you're not with the love of your life, is it even worth it?

Here are five beautifully powerful Rihanna songs that prove relationships are harder than they look.

1. "Take A Bow"

"Don't tell me you're sorry cause you're not // Baby when I know you're only sorry you got caught"

2. "Stupid In Love"

"I still love you, but I just can't do this"

3. "Rehab"

"I never gave myself to another the way I gave it to you // You don't even recognize the ways you hurt me, do you? // It's gonna take a miracle to bring me back // And you're the one to blame"

4. "Te Amo"

"I understand that we all need love and I'm not afraid // I feel the love but I don't feel that way"

5. "Stay"

"Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving // 'Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving"

3 Lessons On Heartbreak I Know My Future Self Will Need

I hope you laugh reading this.

To my future self,

You are currently a first-semester freshman in college. You just experienced your first real heartbreak. You and your boyfriend broke up this past week. The hardest part is that he lives in the same dorm as you, so you're bound to see him whether you would like to or not. Although you are feeling down right now, I am going to write some words of wisdom.

1. Everything happens for a reason

You live by this saying. You're even getting a tattoo that says this. Never forget that "everything happens for a reason," especially during the rough times. This will keep you going. Sometimes bad things happen in order to allow good things to happen. You have to keep looking at things in this way. It's gotten you through plenty before, and I hope it will still get you through plenty in the future. I'm hoping by the time my future self is reading this, I understand why I had to feel heartbreak like this so soon in college, and I'm hoping something else that is good will come out of the negatives.

2. You are strong

You have had people criticize you your whole life. Whether it is how you look, act, dress, smile all the time, etc... Do not let their comments change you. Stay true to yourself. We all know you're the outgoing girl who loves going out with her friends, dancing with them, and smiling the whole night because you just can't stop. You have gotten through plenty in your past with friend breakups, and even other types of breakups, you can get through this one too. You can get through anything, don't lose sight of that.

3. Everything is a lesson

I have to constantly remind myself that everything is a lesson now, even though I never want to accept it. I'm hoping by the time I am reading this, it is ingrained into my mind. Bad things happen so you can learn from them. If bad things never happened, you would never be taught anything. You wouldn't know how to persevere and be the strong, independent woman you are today. This heartbreak happened for a reason. Others are definitely coming in the near future. They will happen for you to learn. It will shape you into your future self.
