Miss You

Lost. Alone.
What do you do when someone leaves
without a goodbye?
I can’t run and find her…
I know exactly where she lies…
At least what was her
before she
I honestly never knew her, and
that thought
rubs me raw in that padlocked
safe Hidden in the
bottom of my heart and
Shoved to the back of my mind.
Why is it that the ones you miss most are
people you have never met?
I have pictures and videos and memories I’ve
dreamed, yet
nothing compares to the
Real Thing…
And it’s strange, but
sometimes when I look in the mirror,
I can see her
in my own reflection…
As though she is tell me that
Will Be Okay…
And she misses me too.
