I live alone in a small apartment building in a residential area. In one of the houses nearby, there lives a couple. In the mornings, I sometimes hear the woman slide open her door and call her cat. She has no idea, but the sound of her voice softly calling the cat fills me with longing and sometimes makes me cry. I just imagine living with a yard, and having a partner, one who gets up early and calls for the cat in her pajamas. Milo...that gentle word whispers of a peaceful, intimate domestic life that I may never have. Milo...

a writer! I don't mean this as a joke nor be insensitive. Your confession reads like the beginning of a novel or a movie I would watch. I read quite a bit, but my writing skills are crap, at best. You may not have a cat, but seems like you have a lot of talent. Keep at it!

It sounds like you really want that lifestyle. Maybe you should try looking for someone to share your life with.

I'm a twisted knarled handicapped old fool learnt to get by without who'll never get closer to love and belonging than music books and movies.

You'll get that life, if you want to. Good luck getting there, and then staying in it!

What a beautiful read

This was so nice to read, a lot of agro confessions lately. Was nice to stumble upon a sweet and genuine thought, a true confession.

Agree with the first comment, your writing style is beautiful. The best written confession in weeks.

Op, I used to have the same thoughts. I’d feel so forlorn when I saw couples together, just walking together. They might have had a kid in tow. I’d feel so far away from ever being in their shoes. But in time, it came all together for me. If your writing is so deep, your personality must be the same. When people are willing to show some vulnerability that’s when others can connect with you. Best wishes to you.

4 or 5 Years ago there was a party house two houses down from me and the same thing happened but it was not was Neemo. She was always trying to find Neemo and calling with that soft voice. I think the opposite of her soft voice than you do. I hated it.
