Today’s prompt: When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?
It’s hard to really say when I last felt really, truly lonely. I mean, at times I feel that way just in the middle of the day doing something by myself.
Right now, I’m off medication (baaad idea!) so I get that strange lonely feeling often. Ugh that sucks.
Hmmm, I think the most lonely moments were when Aussie wasn’t able to be here, when he was working back in Australia and had two jobs that for about 3 weeks had him working pretty darn constantly.
Then, the entire week he was visiting family before he finally came here, as well as the horrid few days of flying in which I just had to trust pilots and planes to get him here safely!
I have to honestly say that, that wait there, pacing up and down the airport was absolutely agonizingly loneliness.
The seconds seemed likes hours, the hours like days! It was an interesting experience, watching the time of arrival for his plane change constantly during the time I was there. First it was just a few minutes, then it was 10, then it was 3, then 15, 20, 10, 30… and finally the countdown began.
I remember hiding off to the side, where I could see the escalator but I couldn’t be seen. Waiting until he was out and about to head to the baggage area.
“I lied about the Taxi,” I said as I came out of hiding, and I could see his shock. That loneliness and worry melted, and it was the best moment that entire summer for me.
I think that about covers it for me! I’ll write again tomorrow with the next prompt!
