It was a cold and dark night. Tom stood naked and shivering; dangerously exposed in the vast space of an endless grass field. The cruel cold and emptiness around Tom had him feeling like his body was not physically present and that he was nothing but a mind wandering around. The grassland stretched as far as his eyes could see and in a moment he suddenly saw a flash of his future - or what he would like his future to be. In it was a wife carrying an infant boy with bowl-cut black hair and fair skin. The mother and child were looking into each other's eyes and giggling then soon after, they each stole a glance towards Tom's direction. At first, Tom did not realize that he was the father and husband to the child and mother, but when they looked at him with smiles on their faces, he was filled with so much love that it overflowed and spilled and spread all over his body to the tips of each of his fingers and toes until he almost cried. There was no way to explain how Tom felt in that moment standing in the cold while witnessing a small portion of his future. After seeing how much warmth is present in his life in the future, Tom felt as if the cold became so painful and the emptiness became unbearably lonely.

Hey! I'm M and this is my page titled "Crazy but Cozy". Going with the flow is supposed to be a cool phrase, but it isn't always a good or responsible thing to do. And yet here I am, and I've been going with the flow since I was born.
