    It's like my heart is going to fall from my chest. All I want is for you to wrap your arms around me and keep me whole. Don't let me go, I'll fall apart. Whisper that you love me. Look at me with adoration in your eyes. Brush your fingers over my skin and kiss me tenderly. Make...

    And I am. Often enough.

    Except not this week because my love is gone from me for the week :( I miss her soft caress and the way she wraps her legs around me and doesn't let me go. I miss the way she holds me so tight I have to squirm to break free of her grasps (although most of the time I don't want...

    I want someonje to hold me. At this point I'm not very picky anymore. I just want someone to love me, and hold me so hard, all my pain flows out. I want my heart to feel squeezed just as much as my body, and warmed with the body heat of the poor soul who decides to give me their...

    I Hurt Inside, Hold Me.

    I hurt inside, but all i have is you. You won't hold me. Do i repel you? Am i disgusting?Why won't you hold me? You won't hold me, just because you can't. You are me. We stand together, hold each other up in the face of the world. We are one person. Me.

    It's Been One Of Those Taupe-colored Days

    My period ended two days ago, and I'm feeling it as my oxytocin levels drop into the toilet. I had a bad dream last night about my terminally ill ex-boyfriend dying in the hospital. I was there visiting him with another person who wasn't a real individual but just a dream...

    Right now, at this moment,

    more than being kissed or anything, I just want to be held. I want someone to hold me tight right now--to just feel his warmth and love. To feel the rise and fall of his chest as he breaths, to feel the air as he inhales and exhales. I want to feel secure in his arms and know...

    Hold Me...

     It's not fair that I have no one. That I could have everyone. When I'm losing it all I want is a hug someone to hold me and let me cry. Tell me it will be okay. Because no one is going to tell me that. I am sick of telling myself it's going to be okay. For once I want...

    I Just Want to Be Held

     It feels like I don't know anyone here anymore.  And it just figures that the first new person I meet doesn't want the same things that I do.  I just want someone to hold me and make me feel safe, not another predator who is just trying to go as far as he can get...

    All I Want...

    All I want is just to have you lay here with me, your arms wrapped around me, my head on your should, and perhaps to fall asleep just there, just like that with someone who loves me for who I am.

    In My Own Globe Of Pain.....

    When I see a man holding a woman it makes me angry, not at the couple, just frustrated. I don't care what people say, not having enough affection does something to you. I have a boyfriend (of 4 years) but alot of good that does me when he is 850 miles away. We are working on...

    Feel Abnormal For This?

    I am 25 and constantly have what I can only describe as a craving to be held. Not in a sexual way necessarily but just in a comforting and nurturing way. There are many people I wish would hold me and sometimes I worry that it's abnormal to want this only because I haven't heard...
