Summary: It’s so hard, when you can’t do anything.
A/N: I wrote this a few days ago, and had decided to type it up and post it this evening anyway. But in a strange sort of way it seems to go with Smiley_Nat’s beautiful story "Home is Where the Coat is". Not beta’d.
I love you so much. I never knew it would happen to me; never expected that one person could mean so much. You’ve come to be everything to me – my night and day, my heart and soul. My light and dark, breath and blood, all those clichés. Everything.
When I see you, when I touch you... it’s difficult to explain, but it’s my whole life, it’s everything I am. And I can’t – without you I don’t think I can go on.
But if you’re coming back, I’ll wait for you, as long as it takes. I’m not going anywhere without you.
They won’t let me touch you. Risk of infection, they say. But I know I could help. I could talk to you, give you something to hold on to, bring you back. I know you’re in there; I can feel you’re still here.
They say only another two days till I can come in there with you. They say don’t get too close, but fuck that. When I get in that room with you I’m going to hold your hand, and stroke your face; kiss your lovely mouth, run my fingers through your hair. And hold you, so close.
Oh yeah, and I’m gonna nibble your ears as well; you might want to consider that a warning.
They say I’ve got to go now. I’ll be back tomorrow my love. Sleep well.
