I haven't met you, but I miss you and I wish you were here

source

I think campfire nights are honestly when I struggle with loneliness the most. Because man, would I love to just stay up all night around those dimming orange flames with you and spill my heart out. Not in shallow ways either, not small talk. I want to talk stars and heartbeats and why we're all here and what this all means. I want to talk about oceans and waves too big to see past; trust and what it feels like to jump, to fall, to believe he's going to catch you. I want to talk about all of that scary, real stuff with someone like you; someone who has fire behind his eyes.

Sometimes I'm okay. Sometimes I'm more than okay. But sometimes when I look at the stars all I can think about is how much I wish you were here. Sometimes all I can bring myself to wonder is

when when when when?

how how how how?

And can I tell you something?

I miss you. I miss you, I miss you.

I miss you. Even though I haven't met you yet.

But we're gonna be okay, aren't we? We're gonna be okay.

I promise.
