Despite the physical limitations of being human: the need for food, water, and air...there are only two things of such profound importance that to be without them, I could not live.
The love of my life, Britton Mangham, and music.
I could live for days without eating, for days without drinking, I could even hold my breath for longer than I can imagine being without my lover or without music.
More so than anything else, I hold the two close to my soul and I am nourished by their memory for every moment I cannot have them with me. And though their memory gets me through, their absence causes me to lose focus, to lose my appetite, to stop drinking, and to forget to breathe. It is so painful that I am not sure if I can take another breath: I cannot be sure that my heart will hit another beat.
But know that having him near me, like hearing a simple melody, brings life back and affirms my health. It is with certainty that I expect to live for forever so long as I have him in my arms and music in my soul.
