    She skated on my derby team for a hot minute. That's how I met her. I was smitten within moments. I wanted her. I wanted her eyes to gaze upon me, her lips to touch mine, her hand to hold mine, her arms to wrap around me. I knew she wanted the same. I would think about her a...

    It Can Be Better Than Words

    Sometimes I need to be comforted with words, and other times, I just need to be comforted with a kind touch. I love being held by my boyfriend. I close my eyes and feel his arms around me, and it's like he can slowly melt away my fears and worries.

    Love Me Tender, Love Me True

    I love hugs, I love physical contact and intimacy. This is part of the reason I love being in a relationship (when I am so lucky), because it's not just about sex. It's about physical intimacy, two bodies holding each other... I miss that. I saw a boy for a short while who gave...

    Wrap Your Arms Around Me, And Never Let Me Go....

    I want you to come up to me one day, and not because you think you HAVE to, but because you WANT to, and just hold me in your arms, and let me know that I am loved, and not because you read over my shoulder and read this story either!

    Hold Me Close

    I want to be held. To feel someone else's warm and heart beat. I want to feel loved and protected. Most of all, i want to not feel alone. I want to feel that someone cares about me. I want to be held and to fall asleep in someone else's arms.
