When time corners and the promise of a future beyond one day is not feasible nor promised any longer, the bottom of the abyss where no amount of bribery, begging, or trading can get you out of.. where all that is left of a life lived is simply the present, one breath, and the hope of a next, it seems you finally reach the place where the hardest moment becomes the easiest. You do not need promises you know will spoil given time and left cold in the air, rather simply someone who can meet your gaze, acknowledge each breath of proof, and make the decision to share the burden, climb into bed, hold you, and wait.

Knowing weighs more than you would expect, and if you have felt it, you will know its distinctions like the taste of water.
