Human beings are designed for many things. Loneliness isn’t one of them. – Mary Alice.
The room was small, the day was noon, the bed was a double iron bunk, and I was 14. While my three roommates snoozed away as the siesta demanded, I laid supine, day dreaming,about a boy.
In this dream, I was the love of his life and he was the love of mine. We loved each other in a way that was true and devoid of any judgment. I could confide in him and he too could confide in me.
We supported each other, helped each other win, and because he was much older than I was – groomed me and lovingly forgave my childish excesses.Follow
