You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world.

Emery Allen

This quote is currently my profile picture. And how deep is it?

Because we are all flawed. And we all need to be reminded of our imperfections and our deluded independence.
We shouldn’t need other people to make us complete…but we do. We are not islands. We are people, the most unpredictable, irritating, beautiful, best and worst things about the planet.
We all have disasters in our souls. Mini calamities sitting and watching life go by, or actively participating in making it go wrong.

We all need soothing. Salves.
And what is this soothing?

Sometimes, you want someone to watch a stupid movie with, and point out all the actors or the shit script. You know you’re going to get irritated at how much they talk at the same time as the characters, but it’s nice to not be alone.

Sometimes, you want someone to tell you you’re beautiful first thing in the morning when your breath can knock a species into extinction and the crust around your eyes rivals a Dominos pizza.

Sometimes, you want to be reminded of your mistakes but also of the things you do right. Your compassion. Your loyalty. Your fantastic shower voice.

And sometimes you want to be that for someone else. You want to love the soul pain away, and thus make yours less. You want to be everything for someone to erase the everyones who weren’t, before you. Even if you probably can’t, you want to be the saviour. The friend. The lover. The person to kiss away the nightmares, even if you are the cause of them, and they are the cause of yours, the knot in your stomach, the pounding in your heart, the sigh in your desire.

We all need love. We all forget.
Kiss someone’s heart today.
