I wouldn’t be able to do a damned thing without you
Lately I’ve been thinking about who I want to love,
and how I want to love,
and why I want to love the way I want to love,
and what I need to learn to love that way, and who I need to become to become the kind of love I want to be… and when I break it all down, when I whittle it into a single breath, it essentially comes out like this:
Before I die, I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know they need to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer, and be absolutely certain I will keep it safe.
I will keep it safe.
