When do I typically feel the most sad?
It’s when I say goodbye.
It’s ending a conversation.
Leaving the dinner or party.
Kissing you at the airport.
Hanging up the phone.
That’s when I feel the most alone.
Not when I wake up by myself in bed. Work remote. Or spend nights in an empty apartment.
It’s the contrast. It’s when I feel the warmth of the people I love and then nothing.
It’s the silence.
