Student: Ms. H, I’m done. Can I write a literal?
Student: That thing you taught us earlier.
Me: An Alliteration?
Student: Yeah, that.

The Canadian cartoonist who creates the web-based comic Robot Hugs says of this comic, Nest, that we should surround ourselves with people “who understand the construction and use of nests. It’s… important that they love you enough to hide from the world with you for a bit.”

My tendency is to run and hide. I’ve always been this way.
When I’m angry
When I’m sad
When I’m overwhelmed
When I’m happy
When I’m anything, I run and hide. It’s just what I do.
I want someone who will run after me…
Not with the intent to get me out of hiding.
I want someone who will come sit beside me in my hiding.
You don’t have to talk, you hardly ever have to listen,
You just exist…
Where I am.
That’s what I want.
I can see across the sea
of all that used to be
to the he that came before me
and I want to set him free.
and never show our faces
until Winter ends?
I am blessed to burn, if you are the flame. I will wait in this darkness, for you to call my name.
