When I Say I Miss You

When I say I miss you
I mean it full force
You means yours differently
that's why I'm never really sure
You mean yours intimately
While I miss who you used to be
The person you were when we first met
So sweet, so there for me but now its a regret
Because it slips my mind that thats no longer who you are
and I really wish someone would send the message to my heart
so that maybe I could let go of the used to bes
face the facts and accept reality
You came into my life when my ex took me for granted
We used to be on the same page and now I don't understand it
I loved you and almost fell
and I thought you did too but now it's hard to tell
you come into my life and disappear
and I'm missing the security of having you here
When all you miss is being able to toy with my emotions
you know all the right things to do and say to have me open
You told me if I fell I'd never touch the floor
I had no doubt in you but now I can't be sure
and youre so good because even when I know it's not real
I almost believe you when you express the way you feel
I miss the you that cared and made me feel like there was good in man
But you only miss being able to use me when you can

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A guy that I really care about told me he missed me and I couldn't say it back. I could only think to myself that I missed who he used to be and the way he used to make me feel

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
