We were standing in the kitchen and Alpha had me in one of those embraces, the kind where nothing in the world exists outside of our little circle. And I wondered, could it be that letting go is as simple as this?
Because in those moments, there is nothing. Just us. His arms wrapped around me, my head on his chest, his breath in my ears. There is no gaggle of thoughts flying madly around my mind, no doubt, no worry, just him and I.
With that embrace he blocks out the world, quiets my mind, and stills the endless doubts and possibilities that are my constant companions. When he lets go, it all comes swirling slowly back in. But in that moment?
There is perfection in peace.
