I Miss Our Old Conversations At 3AM

Tony Ross

i miss our old conversations around 3 am
and the way we both stay awake for the next reply
i miss our movie marathons with popcorns and blankets
while giving spoilers to each other and chatting in the end
i miss our car trips featuring our favorite songs
that left us screaming their lyrics at the top of our lungs
i miss the way you’d gently squeeze my hand
every time you wanted to say “i love you” but couldn’t
i miss the way your lips touched my skin
left them marked, burning and glowing in the dark
i miss the way you said that you have missed me
but you never did and none of what i said was real

i miss what we never became
because you just couldn’t love me back in this game
i miss what you never said
since you were too busy talking to someone else
i miss what you never did
for your skin wanted some other girl’s against it
but most of all i miss the other me
who’d have possibly made you fall for her, head over heels. TC mark
