I didn't think I could miss a person in these ways.

And as the days go by the list of ways to miss you grows longer and longer.

I'm starting to wonder if I even liked all of the things on this list when we were together.

Or maybe they just appear now like gifts that were lost in the mail.

Things that I should have appreciated when I was yours.

Who knew

That walking past a cloud of cigarette smoke would send me back to the way you tasted when we kissed.

That same smoke would envelope me in the feeling of wearing your sweatshirt.

You know, I'm still waking up at 3AM with the feeling of needing to be somewhere.

It seems that my subconscious mind is still stuck on your old work schedule.

Waking up to the rising sun which just reminds me that somewhere there is a moment happening that I am no longer invited to.

Tired eyes, bed head, and kisses. Curling up under covers before a long work day.

I thought I would feel better with the rain cause it used to bring me comfort.

Then I hear thunder and I am standing in a hotel room with your arms wrapped around me.

Watching the waves as they crash against the rocks and the thunderstorm is so harsh the birds have had to cease their flight.

I suppose the ocean is no longer our escape from reality, but our graveyard.

Bordered by streets that once knew our name and memories that once were bright.

It's strange how over time both roads and memories can be eroded.

I guess I should have known better than to invite you in to all of my safe places.

I just saw forever in your lips and your words and so I let my guard down.

I would give anything to be back in that hotel room and watch the ocean with you one last time.

I would freeze myself in that moment as long as possible. Before I knew what it was like to miss what it felt like to touch you.

When exploring a new city was a new adventure around every bend.

Now even places I have never been to have your stamp on every corner.

If only I could figure out how to find comfort in the simple things that always seem to send you back to me.

Although, I don’t know how to find comfort in a ghost.

If you also find yourself stuck in a moment that we used to share

I hope you know

I’m sorry

I miss you
Missing You Part 1

Lately I have been really enjoying writing again. It's been a few years since I've wanted to sit down and write, but lately I've found it to be very therapeutic. It's nice to feel creative again.

This poem is about the the things you miss about a person that you never thought you would. The odd experiences that so vividly bring you to a moment you shared with that person.
