it is so freeing,
not to miss you anymore.
yes, you remain within memories
but each glass that touches my lips
furthers your kiss from my mind.
the moments i would ache for,
your fingers drawing circles
on my arms whilst you held me,
now illicit no more emotion than
a dried pool of blood on the pavement.
a wince, perhaps, but still i go on.
you had me in a constant dream state,
ignoring my blessings,
gazing out the window in hopes
that you would happen to walk by.
the moment i took a look inside
i realized, i have everything i need.
you were never a necessity.
i would rather a full night’s sleep
than share sheets with a ghost
i hope you find your peace.
