Not to be missed


What does it feel like, to be missed?

What does it feel like, when someone asks you to please stay? To please not go away? And please hurry home?

What does it feel like to have someone who wants to be with you, just to be with you?

I want to feel like I will be missed.

I want to feel like I am missed.

I want someone to say, please stay.

When are you coming home? I miss you.

These are all the things I can’t experience as a singleton and all the reasons I want to fall in love. To fall in love with someone who will love me back so much they miss the absence of me, even if it’s only for a moment.

A reciprocal love, a love that is not to be missed.
