I have such a need to feel loved, right now, and it is so deep, so painful and so devastating I can’t even speak about it with anyone.
Bad things just keep happening.
My will to shut my eyes forever keeps happening.
Shit keeps happening.
And all I ask for is a little love, for someone to think I’m special, important, relevant.
I need someone, right now.
And no one will hear my plea.

You know what Francis said to me when he proposed? I remember his exact words. He said, ‘Claire if all you want is happiness, say no. I’m not going to give you a couple of kids and count the days until retirement. I promise you freedom from that. I promise you you’ll never be bored.’ You know, he was the only man—and there were a lot of others who proposed—who understood me.
