I open the door to find my partner crouched in grey waters, his tears running down, like melting icicles dangling on the eaves of his agony.

I strip naked and climb in behind him, and wrap him up in my legs and arms to keep him afloat, and we ride his sobbing, stinging waves.

I love him: His snot, his shit, his blood, his wax, his losses; For better or worse.

I’ll stay here, and hold on for his dear life, and be silent-

    This story has an unusual opening and moves at a good pace. I enjoyed this honest portrayal of true love.
