Taking Inventory

In your absence, it became clear just how badly you didn’t want to go. Early morning phone calls that end in text me laters, and the impulsive dropping by just to say hello after the longest days apart. Tasking someone else with looking after me while you were unable to, itching with fear that I would break when you were miles and miles away. Perhaps we’ve strayed from protocol, maybe we allow ourselves to care too much, but these are some of the most certain moments I’ve felt in centuries.
