Do not ever confuse loneliness with the need for love. Just because you are lonely does not mean you can replace that loneliness with a human being. Voids cannot be filled by people, because people are only human, of course, and cannot adapt to the shape of the void and fill it up like liquid, like milk does to a glass. Loneliness is feeling like the only person in the world in a crowd of people, or wanting a hand to hold. A hand is not equivalent to a whole human being; it’s just a part of them. Holding someone’s hand does not equal love.
I like to see people reunited, maybe that’s a silly thing, but what can I say, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.

I missed you even when I was with you. That’s been my problem, I miss what I already have, and I surround myself with things that are missing.

without you
sadness adorns my body
like mourning clothes.

in everything I do
your absence is evident.

The world moves for love; it kneels before it in awe.

I am terrified by this dark thing
That sleeps in me;
All day I feel its soft, feathery turnings, its malignity.
