I am wondering what ”heartsick” is all about hoping that, once I have puzzled out its mystery, I will also manage to cope with the phenomenon behind this word.
Heartsickness is absence, separation, expectation, distance, sorrow, frustration but also hope.We miss someone only if we anticipate the reunion. Only if we still have inside our souls the most vivid emotions and feelings fuelled by the promise of an encounter.
We miss those we (still) love.Those who are supposed to come back.Those we haven’t forgotten yet.Those we haven’t told everything we had to say.
Heartsickness exists to make us understand that our souls do not belong to us only. And , if we weren’t heartsick, we wouldn’t know when we are in love.
