There's something in that which, to me, feels very raw. I love it.
I used to carry around with me (I mean this literally) a quote from Garrison Keillor, about how shy people can never ask someone to stay with them even when they desperately want to be stayed with. It was a good quote, and very important to me; but this one boils that sentiment right down to the bone. I love it too.
