I miss you.
I miss you a freakin' lot.
I miss everything you do.
I miss you so much I almost forgot
Your smile,
Your laugh,
Your words.

I wish you were here.
I really, really wish you were sitting next to me,
Even though you probably wouldn't hear
My heart,
Aching for you,
My heart,
Breaking for you,
My heart,
turning black and dead without you.

If you were next to me,
Reading this as I wrote it,
Maybe you could see-
My eyes,
Filled with tears,
My brain,
Flooded with fears,
And most of all,
The heart I have,
Or what's left.

I would give you everything.
Every single thing I have,
To stop this shaking
Of my life.
To stop this stupid heart
From breaking.
Stop everything,
The bleeding,
The aching,
The love I know it needs.

If you were here,
I would not be calling,
Would not be asking,
Would not be trying
To stop this heart,
To stop this horrible,
Desperate heart
From beating.

If you were here,
Everything would be
But you're not,
And it isn't.

My heart still yearns for(horribly),
Still bleeds for(deeply),
Still beats for(yearningly),
Still wants(depressingly)
Everything you have,
That you took with you.
Come back,
I need you.
Miss you.

The author's comments:
It was just something that I started to write when I messaged my friend. I started with "I miss you." and I just couldn't stop. I really do miss her, and I think that this poem describes it. It also reminds me of missing my family in Ohio, missing my loved ones who have passed away, and just any relationship with someone after they've left in some form or another.
