    A Dream

    I wish I had someone that I could just fall into.  he would hold me tight when I cried, and I could really let down and cry in front of him. NO ONE(not even my best and closest friend) has ever seen more than sobs from me and the one person that I did break...

    been the one to take care of others...worrying about their welfare, offering my shoulder to cry on on, my arm to lean on, my ear to  listen, my hand to hold...I can't remember the last time someone took care of my needs.. I'm freakin' tired...

    If Only....

    I would love to have someone to cuddle with, build memories with, to take care of while they take care of me. I can't even remember what it feels like to feel loved, and safe in another's arms.

    If

    if my mother had taken care of me, my life would be very different. she was able to care for me to some extent, but that was limited to food and board. none of my emotional needs got met and so i have learned to meet them on my own.

    Protect Me

    Growing up (with abuse) you rarely feel taken care of.  In fact it is more a feeling of being left to the wolves.  I have been taking care of myself ever since I can remember.  I fell into a life of taking care of those around me, so much so that no one has ever...

    I love that I get to take care of my wife. For her it's an emotional need. I'm there to support her and get her through the downers of life. It's a feeling that I've had since we first met and it continues today. I hope she'll always have a need for me.

    Carer

    Since my Mum died when I was 14 I have been a carer for my Dad. I feel like I don't have a Dad and long for someone to look after me. I hate the role reversal, I just want some love and someone to make things alright when they go wrong.

    After 13 Years

       After 13 years of being the one that has to take care of everything, it would be nice to be taken care of. This may sound weak or needy, but it is a very real desire in my heart. I don't mean all the time, just part of the time.
