2nd May 2021 #Pennings
[ 23rd September 2017 I wrote that I felt better than I did a year ago, on the approach of another birthday? Well, yes I did, and in large almost certainly do, but right now, tonight, I'm hurting again. Nothing new of course; just *really* wishing there were someone in my life I could snuggle up with right now; someone who actually wanted to hold me, touch my skin. But there isn't. People with whom I can be, talk, even talk with about this; yes. That they (you) are there is probably why I'm still here at all, but alone in body I remain, and as I age, if there were any vanishingly small chance of that changing, that will be sublimating into vapour blown dissipated into the autumn air. Love I have, lust I can live without, but physical isolation is hard. ]
