You’re Still All That I’m Looking For

When we met in late December that year,

I wished to tell you that you were who I was looking for;

When I started spending time with you,

I wished to tell you that you were someone I’d waste all my days with;

When you told me that you were worried about what I was becoming,

I wished to tell you that no one has ever been able to save me, so there is no point of trying to.

When we kissed for the first time one night on a park bench,

I wished to tell you that if your lips were a city, I’d explore them endlessly;

When I told you about my fears and you held my hand tight, like you never wanted to leave me alone,

I wished to tell you that the little things like that you did, gave me a reason to stay alive;

When you and I used to fight and the only noise between us was silence,

I wished to tell you that my words will always fail to let you know what you truly mean to me;

When you said that you couldn’t do this anymore, that goodbye seemed way better than hello,
I wished to tell you to not let me go

But all I said was “Let me go”

And I wonder if you know that since that day in late December when we first met to the day you left and all the others to follow,

You’re still all I am looking for. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
