I used to flirt with the idea of your absence.

Figuring that I’d miss our conversations or your company.

I knew I would survive.

It’s what I’ve always done best.

What I couldn’t have known-

A variable I never took into account-

Was that your love would become vital to me.

That without it…

Without it, all I would do is survive.

In your absence…

The profound difference our love has made in me has left a gaping hole,

I pray time will fill.
