Sometimes all we want is to be pampered. Someone to hold us close and say nothing. Kiss our head sometimes while stroking our hair. Entangled legs and even breathing. Soothing heartbeats.
Sometimes all we need is a hot bath and someone that will help us wash our hair without making difficult questions like “how are you” and “how was your day”. Because they know it. Because they’ve been there too.
Sometimes all we want is to do nothing. Contemplate life out of the window. Drink some hot beverage. And sit still beside someone that feel the same way we do.
Sometimes all we want is to run away.
Sometimes all it takes is that familiar smell and warmth and the world can fall apart because we know we will be ok.
