You’re not sure what you want exactly. There’s a desire there, an itch, a pining. A smile, a glance, a soft touch. They don’t have a face, no name.
You’ve felt this way before. In a crowded room, at a party, next to your ex. Something is missing. Someone is missing.
You don’t want pity. You don’t want a relationship.
You want a connection, a feeling of closeness.
It’s a reminder you’re human, you’re a person.
It’s also a reminder that you’re choosing to live your own life. You’re choosing to live for something better.
It’s a reminder you haven’t settled. You’re still searching for what you want, what you need, what you deserve.
Choosing to live for something better.
