His Arms

For 2 years, I dated a guy who had great, tattoo'd, tan, muscular arms that he would wrap around me every night we were together. He was in great shape, nothing obsessive, he just worked hard & it showed.
My body fit perfectly up against his. He would tell me that he wanted to hold me all night, and he would. I felt safe and warm. I hadnt experienced that kind of caring before, mostly because in the past, I would push people away that wanted to get too close, physically or emotionally. But not this guy, we fit too nicely to protest.
Tonight I miss that feeling. I miss that feeling of disappearing, being completely enveloped in someone else's arms.
I miss feeling like everything was going to be just fine.
