Snippet (number 37)

“All that I wanted, I can see it right there in your eyes.” I can’t resist reaching out to touch her cheek, the skin is still warm to the touch, even though she’s slipping away from me. The cuts are oozing, but I can’t bring myself to stop touching her, I need her physical presence to keep me anchored, and connected to the good traits that she sees inside me. “You’re never afraid of my darkness, I know that there are times when you don’t understand the ferocity in my soul. However you still give me space to be me, and always there to listen when I need you,”
