I can’t sleep
I am broken
Is it because of him?
Is it because I can’t get him off my mind?
Do I miss him?
Do I still have feelings?

Should I be feeling this way?
I know he doesn't feel the same way
Should I tell him how I feel?
Or should I just let it go?
I’m not sure what I should do

I miss the old times
Hanging out at my house
Watching scary movies
Cuddling, Holding Hands

Every hug
Every kiss
Every touch

I am fixed
Now I can sleep.

Thank You ! It means alot :) I try my hardest to connect with others but everything I write about is from personal experience and how I feel about certain things. I really appreciate your opinion. I learn from others so you are really helping me!

Lol I like it how you started having struggle in sleeping but when you thought about your special moments with him, you fell asleep right away lol I can relate to that ^_^ Anyways! It was very well written like Emily said full of emotion and just honest and true. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing this. Definitely 5 stars :D

Thank You for giving me your opinion! I am a very honest person and im full of emotions. Writing is my only coping skill to use when im angry, I don't like expressing my feelings. Writing lets me

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

It's very well-written. I love how your honest in your poem. It's full of emotion and you. It's wonderful. I love it. It's a bittersweet experience. I can't say I know how you feel, because I'm not you and I don't think I've had this happened to me. But I've went through something rather similar. Thank you for sharing this!
