3. He exists mainly in my mind, like a mirage

Distinctly missing C— today, realized he exists mainly in my mind. 

That’s where he resides most of the time, not in my presence, not anywhere near me. 

He’s like a mirage. 

Shimmering, taunting, disappearing. 

Reflecting more of me and my reaction to him than anything else. 

The mere thought of him can buoy my most mundane moment, like a private joke.

But not today.
