Absorption is a physical or chemical process in which atoms, molecules or ions enter some bulk phase- a solid, liquid or a gas. It is a bulk phenomena.
Adsorption is a physical or chemical process in which, molecules of a solid, liquid or a gas adhere to the surface or a material. It is a surface phenomena.

Is it that you call her your bestfriend only from the surface, or from the bulk?
Surface, or bulk? What are you?
Perhaps, either. Perhaps, both?
And, I don’t know which one is better in a world where the people who are ‘ours’ are the ones to hurt us and we hurt only them.
I really don’t know.
These are some questions, that are unanswered.
