What is the feeling of missing someone?

I often hear people saying that they miss someone but how does it feels like?

Imagine you have just finished a delicious meal. You are still a bit hungry and you really want more. But it is all gone. That's the closest I can come to describe missing someone. Hope it helps.

A void, like there is nothing there but something (normally a person) should be, and its physically painful.

Or at least, thats what i associate with loneliness, idk if thats what it really is.

This helps me, and it helps when I explain "missing someone" to others

Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation -- "As I experience certain sensory input patterns, my mental pathways become accustomed to them. The inputs eventually are anticipated and even missed when absent."
