Time was supposed to stand still,
But that’s not how clocks work;
The seconds turned into blurry months,
And you weren’t there for any of them.
I was never foolish enough to think
I was the only person to have ever felt such a heartbreak.
I felt a love so deep that,
Even when it ended,
I spent my time lingering on a similar set of eyes,
But substitutes will always leave
A sour aftertaste to sting the tongue,
And a bitter glare to match.
I feel the pain of being alone.
I feel the pain of an uncertain future.
I feel the pain of a missing heart.
And I miss you.
