My Narrative Essay
I believe that “Love at first sight” is real. An actual feeling you get when you first lay eyes on that one special person. More special than anybody you’ve ever met. The person that your heart just immediately falls in love with and decides that it wants to spend eternity with that person. I believe in “Love at first sight” because I’ve experienced in before. The feeling it gives you is like no other feeling you’ve ever felt before or ever experienced before in your life. You wonder, “Did I eat something bad?

Then again I never had the experience of love either, besides a family’s love. Every time I heard somebody talk about “Love at first sight” I use to just laugh and say that we all have our own beliefs and our own opinions on things. “Love at first sight” is usually used in movies and novels about a character feeling a strong romantic attraction for a complete stranger once they first lay their eyes on them. It is said to be just a trope, something that is used for figurative language. Described by poets and people from Greek, it has become one of the most powerful tropes in Western fiction. It was used in Les Miserables along with The Little Mermaid and even Romeo and Juliet.
