I can feel his body next to mine, smelling my hair, his arms around me in the most comforting way he knows how- and I realize he could be any number of people and it wouldn't be any different. I could be any girl. Our relation to each other is not the point- it is the pure necessity of having someone. anyone. Our need to be touched becomes heightened when we are in pain... we are living because we have to. The decision was not given to us. We do the best we can.
we hold on tight.
