i) Tenderness lies in your eyes, that care me like kid, that look for the remnants of my pasts and clear them leaving no traces.
ii) Tenderness lies in my mum’s words, that are soft and gentle stimuli that my nerve cells perfectly respond to.
iii) Tender lies in the sad songs, I weirdly vibe with, they are the sympathetic hands, who have me afloat in the ocean of my thoughts.
iv) Tenderness lies in your chest, on which I lay upon and rest, it’s my haven on the terrible purple days.
v) Tenderness lies in the air that you breathe out and it touching my earlobes, its are warmer and comforting than the furnace in the living room.
vi) The cute little poems you write for me, are lovey-dovey and heartwarming, the huge efforts you take to bring a small smile in my face is where tenderness lies in.
vii) When we walk barefoot on the grass, you lift and hold me in your hands to avoid the sharp edges of the grass hurting my tender feet, you know this act of yours is tenderness.
viii) How we draw in similarities between opposites and cancel out the odds and multiply the evens in each of us is the synonym of a tender, humane love, I strongly believe in this.
ix) When I’m desperate or when I’m struck by anxiety for the nth time on the same day, you hold my hand and say, “Calm down, I’m there”, that motherly warmth you give to my palms, spread all over my shivering body and provide great relief, what else can define tenderness?
x) When everyone said it’s hard to handle a person experiencing PTSD, your love was my therapy.
