The distant road

"I wanted a man who’d experienced pain at one
point in his life. I needed someone who wouldn’t be
reckless with my heart, who knew what it felt like to hurt.
I wanted a man, not a boy.
I didn’t want a man afraid of loss but one who wanted
me out of joy, out of preference.
And I needed to live that way myself,
to find someone I truly wanted, not just someone
who wanted me."
