Sexual attraction can’t hold the sum of these feelings either. Physical yearning plays its part in leaving me more open, laying aside the restrictions and inhibitions I usually bind myself to. It’s through desire that I reach outside of myself and can acknowledge the other. It’s through desire that I find that part of me that wants to touch another soul, to hear the music of your laughter, to feel just how real your presence is. I am selfish. I devour you again and again and never once say a word.
