At a baseball game, I miss the feeling of her hand in my own. At a movie, I pine for her head against my shoulder. At night, when I fall asleep, I ache to feel her body next to mine.

Yet I have never done these things, with her or anyone else.

I've seen her skin, but never run a hand over it; I've heard her voice, but never felt her breath. So how can I crave these things?

Is it possible to miss something you have never experienced? Yes, but I can't understand how it can be so painful.

Hopefully I can avoid deletion this time...oh, and if you're too lazy to count, the above is a nonfiction drabble.
