I Should Have...


Published: August 2016

I think I am emptier today
than I have been since you left.

I can't stop hearing your voice say goodbye.
I can't stop seeing your eyes
tear up as I vanished from your life.

It hurts when I think of pushing you away
when I should have let you hold me as I cried.

I should have told you to run with me.
I should have told you to stay,
but instead, I let myself let you go.

Maybe I was scared of holding you,
too scared to get close,
scared to get my heart broken,
but saying goodbye was the worst mistake.

I miss you being next to me when I wake up.
I miss running my hands through your hair.
I miss staring into your eyes.
I miss your voice telling me to run with you.
I hated to tell you we couldn't just escape the distance.

I hated wiping your tears away as you held me close,
wishing not to leave me.
But I let you go, and I wish I didn't.
