HOW TO MISS ME: A GUIDE

by Girlinshadows (Theheroiccouplet)

Miss me

In the way the waves

miss the shore,

the way the Moon misses the Sun

and all those cliches

 

Miss me silently.

Cry yourself to sleep, but tell no one.

Get yourself a journal and start writing.

 

Turn our story into poetry,

Your pain into a novel.

Make me a hero, or a villain,

if you wish.

 

Write about me until you heal.

Every time you write my name, notice how

it fades a little.

It’ll disappear eventually; I promise.

 

And if you still miss me after all this

Don’t worry.

You will miss me. And you will keep missing me,

Until you don’t.

 

 

-F.Z (thewanderess)
