With invisible ink, he draws a desert in the ether, to tell her he misses her.
He throws empty bottles into the sea, hoping they will somehow find their way to her – bottles full of air, carrying absent messages she is meant to decipher.
He is incapable of facing her, utterly unable to say the words that matter.
He is emotionally stunted and has been left stranded, a ship without anchor, condemned to linger and dither forever.
