I rarely have nights like this; but tonight, the dull, aching loneliness has a firm grip on my heart. I long for someone to hold me. There are storms outside, and the wind is whistling, and I feel more alone than I have in ages. I want to feel a man’s strong arms around me, and his tender touches. I want his lips to kiss my hair and tell me that all the heartbreaks are far behind me now, and that I am finally loved—for real and forever.
