    Hold Me Close

    Here I am, sitting in an empty bar, trying to write, as tears fall, and my hands shake. All I want right now is to be held. What more can I say?

    If It Could Happen

    being held, in my opinion is feeling loved by someone. the feeling of safe and security and knowing whatever happens you are going to be alright!

    I love being held. The warm feeling of someone's arms being wrapped around you <3 It's magnificent. Nothing compares to body heat. It sucks sleeping all by yourself and pretending that your pillow is another person... It's just not the same!

    Want to Feel It

    I know what being held looked like as far as my mom holding me close to her like a hug. The fact is though I havent felt that in the way of a male role model or a guy that I like. It might sound that I am desperate but I'm truely not. What does anyone else think?
