Missing You

Foolish I was to even think
That a week away would strengthen me
All it did was make me weaker
The farther away from you I am
The more spread out I become
Unraveling like a thread worn too thin
I had believed that without your words
I could finally stray off this path
I have been forcibly walking
But there I was a thousand miles away
And your words still crawled under my skin
Poisoning my very existence
I could still picture your face
The look of love you used to bestow upon me
But now is reserved for another
I wish I could look in your eyes
And glance upon forever in your arms
Wishes on shooting stars fail me now
As I whisper I love you with
Tears streaming down my face
I cannot help but indulge myself in dreams of you
Such indulgument is sinful, I know
But I cannot help but to sin this way
If I could, I would spend forever in your arms
Fate, of course, has chosen
A different, less pleasant path for me to walk
And a thousand miles away…
I am missing you still
