all he needs

watching a movie. He comes to sit by me on the couch. Holds my hand. leans his head on my shoulder. that is all he needs. It fills the physical contact for him. for me it creates pain. Deep and sorrowful.
To survive it i shut down, guard my heart, lock it up.
And others wonder why the walls are so high.
It is because this is all he needs.

    Hugs, the unintentional cruelty eats away at your soul. How do they live with so little desire?

      his desires lie i things that do not need emotion. He is and always has been to some extent a man who is closed off and reserved. He is much like his mother in many ways, except i remember her talking openly about her active sex life with my father in law until his passing. They were both in their early 60’s and still rocking the shutters.
