“I want to claim my rib within you.”
This is the statement that threw me off balance.
I paused for so long after the words were spoken that I almost forgot that I needed to breathe in order to continue living.
The comment came in the midst of a discussion.
Really a talk on the pros and cons of beginning a new romantic relationship.
It was directed at me after I voiced my fears on trusting and loving a new partner.
It threw me for a complete loop.
So simple a statement.
But oh the power of those 8 little words.
It encompassed everything that I ever thought I wanted to hear from a man.
A promise to love, honor, protect and build.
A promise of forever.
A statement I’ve wanted, waited to hear for so long.
And it scared the crap out of me.
Have you ever had someone say something to you that just stops you in your tracks?
