Its 7 am and the first thing I do when i wake up is text her Good morning if she hasn’t texted me first.
8 am and I call her as faithfully as the sun shines in the sky before we officially start our days. Whenever we don’t text or talk for long stretches at a time I wonder what she’s doing.
3 pm and I call her first thing when I get in the house from class. Before I take my shoes off or grab a bite to eat. It more of a habit now than it is a thing I just do.
I always think its cute when she checks in on and with me. She asks me how my day is goin, if I’ve eaten, if I’m ok. She tells me she going to play video games or go chill with some friends. Even when I’m being a little bit selfish sometimes and don’t ask her how her day goes or if she’s ok or hungry.
12 am and we’re up having our late night conversations, I imagine she’s laying next to me saying those words instead of over the phone. Listening to her fall asleep and snore lightly, or her telling me a story and me falling asleep on her.
12:30 we say our I love You’s and Good Nights.
1am I’m feigning to feel her presence sharing the space in my bed. Going to sleep without her is agonizing when I hear her voice before I go asleep. Sometimes the longing gets so strong I swear I can feel her laying beside me, her soft breath on my skin, only my imagination playing me.
