I got off the plane and on one was there.
There was no one I knew, and no one waiting for me on the other side, no smile, hug, or kiss to greet me.
“Is this how it’s gonna be?” I asked myself.
I know it’s not how I want it to be and I know exactly what I want at this moment. The scenario plays in my head each time I step off an airplane.
How can no one be here?
The hallways feel so empty, the intercom rattles off some announcements, but I see space.
So much silence. So much noise. So many people, yet none.
For how long this will last…that I do not know. That is a question I consider a lot and that is something I will learn the answer to with time.
