“People always say it’s difficult missing people at night, and I don’t disagree.
But I think morning is even more cruel. When you go to check your phone but you don’t see his/her name on it. When you’ve just opened your eyes and your brain hasn’t even had time to process that (s)he’s gone yet. You’ve almost forgotten.
And then you have to get out of bed with that knowledge and start your day.”
-Gabriela Melati, 2014.
