I literally crave affection. It’s not about sex. I crave somebody to cuddle with me, and to lay their head on my lap. I crave kisses, holding hands and running my thumb across theirs. Just looking at someone and thinking “how did I get this lucky”.
I’m stuck between wanting:
1. A long lasting relationship with my soulmate who supports me and protects me and is my partner and we are completely bad ass together and in love
2. Wanting to have casual sex and rip out the heart of everyone person I meet
3. Being independent and having a loyal dog while I’m married to my career
It scares me how accurate this is.
You can tell me “not all men.”
every woman knows that.
But when the weight of a single man
crushes her into the mattress
and extinguishes the light from her eyes,
there is no statistic
or clever saying
that can stop her from feeling the burn of his touch
in every man’s gaze.
So maybe, to you, it’s one man.
But for her, it is all.
