You know you miss someone when you literally feel physical pain in your chest because you can’t be with them. It’s so fucking painful.
They’ve watched their mothers leave every morning,
and their fathers leave every night.
We think, maybe that’s where they learned their disappearing act.
But I know women who’ve lived their entire lives in empty homes,
and the absence has taught them something else.
I quote this all the time and no one picks up on it
