Did you know that every time I see a little blue Saturn, I think it’s you? So I raise my hand and tap my brakes, hoping that maybe you’ll do the same and we’ll stop on this old country road just like we used to, talking until someone else passes through. But I always remember at the last second that you’re 3,000 miles away. Maybe it’s the rain, but something about today just reminded me of how much I miss you.

Thoughts on my mother’s prolonged absence. It’s not that I’m trying to guilt her into coming home, I just have kind of been pushing the loneliness onto the backburner and somehow it just hit me today. I really, really miss her. I just miss the little things we used to do together all of the time… I don’t know… It’s weird.
