Hey, uh, I have missed you.
Not like Romeo did Juliet
Or like Noah did Allie,
More like Han missed Chewie.
The point is, I wish things were normal.
I want our long talks about nothing,
Even the occasional silent ones.
We seem to have been playing phone tag lately,
Which is okay but I am ready to talk,
Ready to hear about your horrible drinking habits and your endless girl problems.
How does two years feel like a life time?
I guess friendships are like that sometimes.
Life goes on but it goes slower without your
best friend making you laugh,
Or calming you down when you need it the most.
I heard you are coming back into town,
I hope to see you.
Sorry to drag on,
Call me back.

-a voice message i wish i made
An easy breath,
Blows through a swing,
An uneasy melody,
Fades in the horizon,
Of pink and blue,
I chased after the sky,
I climbed up this hill,
To abandon memories,
I hear,
Your breath,
A whisper from a music box,
Repeating the same tune,
I don't want to linger,
I cannot forget,
This rhythm,
That is your breath.

Aati hai kya yaad meri?
Mere mehboob kuch to bata do
Tadpati hui in judaayi
Ke palon ko kuch to salaah do

Aaj apne dil se pooch kar
Is mohabath ko kuch silaah do
Dil ki Jaadui chiraag se pyaar
Na kabhi kam **, maang lo

Aati hai kya yaad meri?
Mere mehboob kuch to bata do
Tadpati hui in judaayi
Ke palon ko kuch to salaah do


English Translation...

Do I come in your thoughts?
O my love please do tell
Painful moments without you
is pleading for a prayer  impel

Today ask your heart within
to reward our love graceful
Wish  hearts magical lamp gin
to always keep our love brimful

Do I come in your thoughts?
O my love please do tell
Painful moments without you
is pleading for a prayer  impel

I miss you
The way you wrapped your tender arms around me
The way you looked at me when I was mad trying to find the answer in my eyes
The cold December nights where we laid cuddled up under blankets
The sunny spring days where we'd fall asleep under the shelter of the dark green trees
The humored voice you'd always use when telling me to not be scared of your mother
The way your eyes would settle on me as if I was the only one there
waiting for the impossible
Raven Mc Chim Dec 2021
Holding onto the old days that won't repeat
Excepting a magic to happen
But at the end everything goes downhill
Maybe letting go of the old memories doesn't hurt much.
But hoping those memories to repeat is a mere imagination
Because
Memories happen not created
You made me feel that remembering those doesn't hurt.
But here I'm siting alone for seeking your precence
while I stare at the sky filled with stars
Now moon is filling your company
Walking with me and hearing my rants and talks.
Will you come and be with me again. I will take good care of you.
Time scares me when you leave my arms
A single breath without you seems like wasted years
When your heart and my heart sit on the balcony of what we built  together
Every other ***** of my body seem to disappear
I guess your irresistible beauty takes them away
For only the melody of my heart beat I feel
Probably beating on the walls of my chest trying to get to you

But now you are far away
The ghost of your kiss haunts my emotions
Can't have a clear thought without the memory glistening in my mind

This body have become an abandoned house
No one dares comes in
Cause it's haunted by your memories
Dark without the torch of your smile

I want you to know just a single day has made all this difference
Imagine forever
Please don't do imagine that
My heart wouldn't endure such pain
Kewayne Wadley Nov 2021
It's been so many nights
I've scrolled down my contact list
& Highlighted your name.
So many nights you've crossed
My mind and never left.
Wherever you call home
Wherever I call home.
Places I thought we'd never go
Desperate finding our way back.
You're name a direct reflection
Of the sun,
My finger an eclipse.
Unknown to the philosophers
And professors who study science.
It's been so many nights
I've scrolled down my contact list
& Your name has shone bright
Like some shooting star
Searching for something it's lost.
Knowing our history
You'd have to be there to have
Seen it.
Without first contact,
I miss you every time
Merlie T Oct 2021
I lift my head up from the bow
A risk to take just yet
Iron caves have rusted
Surround and keep me warm
To leave here now frightens me so
But to stay will do the same
Years and year so dream to return
Forever I sorley yearn
To speak you and to find you
Is the only vision I can see
Your hand reached out to mine
So calmly and serene
To step over that threshold
Into the safety of always
Where we dance in memories past
Laugh as we always have
Nao Sep 2021
I don't feel the need to
I used to
a lot
in the beginning
I had all these doubts and hopes
you’d leave me
find me
love me
hate me
I had no idea
I didn’t know you
I was scared
I was with someone

I don’t write about you

I had lists
with pros and cons
dos and don’ts
tons of little things
to remember
you were
all I had hoped for
you still are
but with it came
the fear of a lie

I don’t write about you
I never really did
at least not as much
as about everyone else
I usually like
the ones who hurt me
I dress them up
in dresses and pants
and lipstick and cologne
pretty words and poems
they never mattered
not like you did
not like you do

I don’t write about you

I was never in love
never complete
I needed someone
to make themselves small
fill the cracks in my gut
and melt to heal me
I used so many
for satisfaction
Validation
boredom
You were one of them
a means to an end
Nothing more

I don’t write about you

I really don’t
don’t think too highly of yourself
you’re not any better
you’re just what I need
what I want
and it’ll change soon
that’s a lie
a real one
See?
I’m a good liar

I don’t write about you
I call you instead
everyday
in the morning
during lunch
before I go to sleep
and in the morning again
I wake up to you
telling me you missed me
and go to bed
to you said you missed me
how can you miss me so much
cruel unfair little me
what do you want
I have nothing to give

I don’t write about you

so tell me now
What is this
what do you expect
is it my body?
my time?
you already have half
of me
and yet
you’re so far
so perfect
so dreamy
mister charming
my knight in shining armour
I don’t need you
I’m doing great
I don’t even write about you
and your perfect hair
and white teeth
and sharp jawline
and rose cheeks
and you pretty smile
I don’t write about that
about you
I don’t write about your sweet words
your I love yous
and your excitement
the meals you order for me
I don’t write about you
and your
perfect
dashing
charming
Angelic
Self

I don’t write about you
I don't need to
for once
I have nothing to prove
to myself
no need to tell friends that
you look different from your pictures
no need to remind me why
I care about you
and why I should put in the effort
I trust me
and I trust you
my iPhone notes
don’t get to feel what I feel
when you call me baby
in front of your dad
or when you screenshot me
When you think I look good

I don’t write about you
I hope I never do
I love you stupid

Thank you
to Luka
It's almost been one year now...

Since I last saw your bright eyes and perfect smile, I still smile when I think of you.

It's almost been one year,

Since I felt your warm embrace around me, sometimes when I'm huddled in a cozy blanket, I can almost feel you again.

It's almost been one year,

Since you broke my heart,
I was so sure I'd have forgotten about you by now.

But its almost been one year,
And if I'm being honest, I still miss you like you left me yesterday.

-c.m.
