What does it feel like to be hugged by someone you have feeling for?
And that 'someone'is completely oblivious to it.
It's a love-hate relationship, really.

I never really understood a love-hate relationship.
Until the day you hugged me.

I loved how you warmed me,
My body and my heart.
All at the same time.

I loved how strong you were,
And yet so gently you hugged me.
I loved how your breath caressed my neck,
And it gave me a reason to stay in your embrace.
I loved how you smelt of freshness and strength,
And it calmed my nerves.

But then when you slowly pulled back,
I hated how cold and empty it felt.
Inside and out.
I hated it was over so fast.
I hated how I leaned in to get you close once again.
I hated how I wished the time would stop.
I hated why you hugged me in the first place.

Because it felt so right and so beautiful,
That I never wanted it to end.
Your innocent tiny strokes behind my neck,
Your soothing soft breath,
The steady strum of your heartbeat,
The way we fit together perfectly.

Because when I was snuggling deeper into your shelter,
I could feel my soul dancing, rejoicing and tingling!
But then it was time,
Time for you to go.
I hated it even more so.
And in that moment I realised,
It will never be the same.
Because it wasn’t just the loss of a warm body to me.
It was the loss of a part of my heart,
That must have went to yours
while we hugged.
