I don’t say I miss you just to get a reaction from you. It’s not a sad attempt for attention from you, please know that I have never needed that much attention from anyone.
They say you don’t know what’s important to you until it’s gone. Now I understand why losing you left a void in my heart. I finally understand how much you really mean to me
She used to think that’s what would make you walk away. But now she’s the one leaving.
I waited, I wished, to see you turn back and say I choose you, be with me, but you didn’t. It’s the most physical kind of wanting and of aching I’ve ever known.

I will miss you in the minutes, in the seconds, in the spaces between us.
There is no cure for missing someone. I will always miss my mom.
This is the real reason why I walked away from you: I got scared.
