Dear man I have never met: November 15, 2016


Dear Man I’ve never met,

Your phantom shoulder really is quite comforting. One wouldn’t think so, given the whole phantom aspect, but, just the hope of you makes it easier to sleep.

I worried that I might have just accepted you as a lost cause and am merely existing on vapors.

But then, I realized, that I am actually quite happy and you are not so much a sad longing, as a really really hopeful one.

This spot is your placeholder.

I get dibs on the right side. Non-negotiable.

Do you have any idea how long it took me to get use to this side of the bed.

I will share the covers, reluctantly.

Might be better to buy two sets of comforters. (I tend to wrap myself up like a burrito).
