About a year back I had a realization: I don't miss anyone. At that point I'd already been single for quite some time after years of relationships. It hit me that I don't long for anyone. There is no one my heart aches for. I can remember the feeling; I've certainly felt it on more than one occasion. Since returning home from seeing friends up north, though, my heart ever-so-slightly aches. It's quiet, hushed, almost imperceptible- but my heart knows better. Oh sweet desire!
