I Do Not Miss You, But I Miss Who I Thought You Were


Yes, if I had the chance to do it all over again, I would. Without a doubt or even a second thought.

There was not a soul on this planet that could take me away from you, except for you. And as time separates us further away from each other, I realize now that you are not what I needed, but what I wanted.

I would give it all away just to relive what it felt like, to be held in your arms one last time and rest my lips against yours, as if it were for the first time.

I would relive every tear, every laugh, every smile, and every heartbreak you caused me, from the beginning and up until the very end.

I no longer wish for a future for us, but I wish I could have you once more and we could talk like friends before we become strangers.

I do not miss you, but I miss your presence and who I thought you were. I crave the nights where we’d laugh endlessly, and the following mornings where we’d wake up tangled in each other’s arms.

We’re underneath the same moon, and although we are not together, it’s enough to know that we share the same hours, and sleep under the same sky, even if we are miles apart.

As I move on, you’ll always be in the back of my mind, and you’ll always have a place in my heart. But I would never want to be yours again. No one feels the same as you do, not even you.

May the stars guide you into another woman’s arms, and I pray that she is everything you need. If I am not half the woman you desire, I dream that you are united with the one that is.

I can only hope the same for myself.
