My greatest problem is, I will always look at you with love in my eyes, and you will always glance at me with uncertainty in your eyes.
Do you see my problem?
I’m in love with you because you make me feel safe. It sounds corny and vague. People always talk about feeling safe with someone and you wonder what it even means. I still don’t really know. All I know is that when I’m with you, I feel like I’m clutching a giant thing of pepper spray or reliving a moment of being carried to bed by my parents when I was five years old and fell asleep in front of the television. All day long, I can feel fragile, like a raw nerve, and when I come home to you, it’s like I just put on the thickest winter coat and installed bulletproof windows in my apartment. ‘Honey, I’m home…and no longer terrified.’
Ryan O’Connell, This is Why I’m in Love With You
Someone asked me what home was, I almost said your name. People expect you to say a place but your arms made me feel safer than I ever did between four walls and a roof over my head.
