"Love a girl who writes,
and live her many lives;
you have yet to find her,
beneath her words of guise."

“I miss you”
only reminds me you’re gone.
“I need you”
only reminds me you’re not coming back.
“I love you”
only reminds me you took my heart with you.
“I want you”
only reminds me you were never mine to have.

The pain from these words only remind me you were real.

"Would she hear me if I called her name? Would she hold me if she knew my shame? Would she even love me if I was to blame?" -Favourite poem ever♥

This is so simple, and yet it holds so much meaning. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it made me feel the pain and the hurt and yet the love all at the same time. I would dig deeper, but I haven't the time. Keep writing! You're wondrous!
