I am isolated
when you are not near.
I cease to be beautiful
without you.
Like a tree in the center
of the woods
that ceases to exist
when no hikers are nearby
to admire its loveliness.
Its majesty.
I wish I could be the sunlight
we both need all the time.
I wish I could banish all of
our darkness.
I wish I could hold you
against my body today
and just feel,
and feel
and continue to feel.
All my emotions tumbling out
into you.
—  "Longing For You" By Radha Kistler 

I know that being your own person is important and all, but I can’t help but wish I had a someone. Someone who made my heart excited, someone who even silence over the phone with is comforting, someone who’s smile is my favourite sight, someone who will kiss my neck and leave me with a thousand tiny tingles. 

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a relationship. It doesn’t make you weaker to admit you would enjoy closeness, and connection with another person.

Instructions on How to Love

You must open her up and see the lines that run along her soul.

Then you will be able to see how old it is.

Next you compare her lines to yours.

You will see dots numbered one to infinity.

Begin to draw the love connection.

Sometimes you may get lost.

But we have erasers for correction.

As time passes your hands will grow stronger.

So be sure you have the strength to draw longer.

When you are finished connecting, have your child color in the portrait.

When I look up at the night sky & I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than most of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up — many people feel small, because they’re small, the Universe is big — but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity — that’s really what you want in life. You want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant. You want to feel like you’re a participant in the goings on & activities & events around you. That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive.
