Some days the world seems to have an overload of everything.
Too brash, too loud, too over-the-top.
These are the days I long for a tiny bit of tenderness.
For someone else to quietly acknowledge that you’re being suffocated by the amount of stuff that clogs up life.
Because not everyone needs romantic overtures and public announcements of love.
Sometimes all you need is someone to ask ‘how are you?’, to pat you on the head and let you know that they’re there.
And I’m thankful for the people in my life who do that for me.
You don’t need many, but you need them to fiercely cheer you on.
How long has it been since someone touched a part of you other than your body?
