June 25: I miss you like sleep

There's a lot of good song lyrics out there but I heard this one today while listening to You Am I and it echoed in my head all afternoon. What a brutally wonderful line! Don't you love it when the simplest, fewest words create the most intensely complicated emotional response?

I miss you like sleep.  

I've been thinking a lot about words lately; obviously just picking up this writing project has made me think about how to write effectively and authentically. I screenprinted some fortunes and wisdom the other night in which each word had to be careful and powerful. Careful and powerful. I also stumbled upon the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows yesterday and it's been floating around in my head ever since.

I miss you like sleep. I miss sleep. I miss you. Aren't the words "I miss you" just so incredibly powerful?
