there is nothing quite as beloved as having a companion. whether of our collective species or otherwise, the draw and warmth of knowing that someone out there in this nigh-immeasurable expanse of the earth is both a comfort and a blessing.
to have a love in your life, to know that feeling of loneliness ebb and crumble away like the delta of a river finally reaching the wide open ocean. such a relief and an anchor. this is the absolute and the welcomed tether of such a one plus one.
despite all odds, blockades real or perceived, let someone really know how you feel. with truth and honesty, boldly, in plain speak, and face to face. you'll be better for the saying-out-loud of it, and you can begin to move on, together or otherwise.
