One-liners linger, swell, swirl, often irk and continue to eddy until freed.
Ever wonder how you could be so insensitive to the person you love? My apologies once again.
familiarity and habit seem to be double-edged swords in intimacy... so much tenderness can be embedded in them and at the same time so much can be overlooked.... i suppose it is these moments of attentiveness to what cannot be overlooked that make the difference, like this moment you have conveyed here; quite lovely and heartfelt.
I appreciate your sentiments here, HQ. Thankfully, the double-edge challenge of intimacy continues. It's too easy to retrench and go away.
a small prayer to every other couple who struggles and continues to love...
