Falling In At Night


"Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, 
which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, 
and falling in at night. I miss you like hell." 
— Edna St. Vincent Millay

"Maybe," 
he wrote me,
"sometime after the next paycheck,
you should go get your hair cut
or get a manicure
and all that stuff to help you relax
because you are pretty much on your own
till I'm home."

"Maybe,"
I told him.

"I'd rather just have you."

Sounds a conversation that I have had with Kyle on many occasions. Nothing compares to having them home.
