In the Past
In the past, I truly disregarded the saying 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' and instead replaced it with 'absence makes me wander'.
When I miss him, I think of him, think of the things we have shared, the conversations we have had and I try to improve myself in some way for his return.
In the past, I started to become distant, so that in case he decides not to come back, I am prepared. I become silent, I then write letters that I will never send to them, telling them of how much I miss them, I write poetry, and I delve myself further into work.
