“What mattered was that I needed you.
And you were there.”
It feels like you’re miles away, yet you’re right next to me. Skin to skin. I can feel your warmth as you hold me together with the strength of your arms. And I wonder if you know how much I needed your strength tonight. I wonder if you know just how much I was crumbling. You didn’t need to ask, because, to you, it didn’t matter. What mattered was that I needed you. And you were there.

You were there to hold me together.
