I remember reading somewhere that when it comes to missing someone there is a clear difference between the man and the woman.
When a woman is missing someone or something, she feels it immediately, whereas the man, well it takes him a little longer to realise what it is he is missing.
Which leads me to wonder, if that is the case why do we lose each other at all?
Because before you know it, it just becomes another relationship ending, two hearts hurting.
Ego and pride overtake any genuine feelings and the person you once knew everything about becomes a stranger. The silence lingers from hours, to days to weeks.
And in those quiet moments when we hide how we truly feel, those moments in which we should seize the moment to make the first move, send that message, we don’t. Even when we know we should say something.
Even when we know we could make it right.
Because we’re always waiting, waiting for the other person to reach out.
And that is how that person whom we love so much becomes a stranger.
So, are you thinking whether she misses you?
Yes she does, she is wondering how your day is going, how you are sleeping and to who you have given your heart too.
The truth? She’s busy, keeping herself busy to keep her mind occupied.
Doing everything she can to distract from the pain.
She misses you but she is trying to be so strong, she wishes everyday that she could tell you how she feels. But she fights against herself, because surely if you missed her, you would say something.
She doesn’t want to invest her time into someone who doesn’t miss her too, so she puts on a brave face and keeps herself busy.
The truth is each of you is hurting yet each of you still cares.
But neither of you are doing anything about it.
And so it continues.
