But I loved the library simply because it was a library. I love libraries. I like reading, but I love libraries. Being surrounded by books makes me feel safe, the way some people need trees or mountains around them to feel secure. Not me – nature’s not what I cling to. I cling to books.
This is a real relationship ideal to me. I think it’s one of the main reasons I haven’t given up on relationships. Because I want this.
To love someone so deeply, and in the evening be able to curl up against them, close my eyes and hear/feel their voice deep in their chest telling me amazing stories and beautiful words slowly slowly lull me to sweet, contented sleep.
