This Is What You Missed Out On When You Said Goodbye

You missed out on
casual conversations that would lead
you to a spot in my bed.

You missed out on
witty banter during breakfast
and syrup kisses between pancakes.

You missed out on
sing along sessions during road trips
and polaroid pictures to hang on our fridge.

You missed out on
hot summers, our fingers entangled together
and salty soaked skin to match the sheets.

You missed out on
black coffee Saturday afternoons
spent hibernating in our blankets till dark.

You missed out on
Friday night dinners where I could
leave you speechless once again.

You missed out on
something that could’ve been your home.
on someone that could’ve been your light.

You missed out on
the masterpiece of you and me
when you said goodbye.

You missed out on
the one real thing you ever knew
when you said goodbye. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
