You're in my thoughts

Today
was you.
Everything reminded me
of those empty spaces
you should
be in.

I walked past your car,
smiled.
Remembering
all our trips,
to everywhere.

Glanced at my phone,
reminded
of you, teasing,
"You type so slow!"
reminded
of that message,
the one about the
Truth.

I sat in your spot on
the couch.
I walked past your
room,
where did you go?

I glanced at the clock,
5:12 (blink) 5:12
your room number. 512.
smiled.

I walked past the
counter,
look! a picture of us.
I
took it to my
room and
framed it,
sketched it,
cried over it.

I wonder, where you are
and
who you're with
and
if you know,
you're in my thoughts.

Very powerful... it is personal and emotional, but also, in a way, generic, in that so many can relate. Great job!

yeah the way you wrote it is so interesting. i can tell you really think about when to skip to the next line, cuz it really adds emphasis on certain words. i do the same thing. i feel like i can envision your thought process while writing this poem.

Wow this is wow! I loved it and I can relate it's great. Oh yes to answer you question, yes my poem Loss Of Control is about an eating disorder, but it is also about cutting too. But yeah I love your poem, you should really get more on here it is really good.
