When I say I miss you

Which I do

Quiet when the house is sleeping

When only ghosts are listening

It is with longing and it is true

It is the long way round to

I miss me

The one you reflected

Reviled and held

I miss the me that curled into your side

The one who held voice

Rage and opinions

The me that walked

The one who left

The me that could have stayed

But didn't

That me

I miss you

But that is half the lie

And the entire truth.
