You can never truly appreciate what's good in life until you have experienced what's bad.

My jacket you use to wear

Still sits

Folded up in my closet

I pick it up sometimes

And hold it my nose

Your sweet sent still lingers

And for a few seconds

It’s as if I have you in my arms once more

I think of your beautiful smile

As I try to hold back tears of

Memories of your perfection

Come flooding back to me

Your long wavy hair

Hiding that pretty face

My fingers gently push it away

When I leaned in to kiss you

Your lips soft and sweet

Press against mine

While we stand on your porch

Not wanting to say goodbye

Your gentle green eyes

Could always see threw

My acts of anger and solace

You’d comfort me

when no one else could

Your long slender legs

Smooth and elegant

Get tickled by my fingers

As they gently move across

The sound of your voice

Unique in every way

Still echoes in my head

With the words “I love you too”

But now all I have left

Is this jacket to remind me

Of the times we once shared

And makes me wonder

of the times we could’ve shared

You seem to either really miss this girl, or you are really good with faking emotions and stories such as these, either way they are amazing, all of your poems are
