I Am Missing You.
Take 1. I’m not sure if I am lonely or I just miss you. Maybe one day you will come around.
Take 2. You are safety and beautiful and truth. You are a friend and real and a loving me. I am so safe and secure and impressed that I could be set free by loving you. And being loved by you.
In all the times that I was lonely and scared and afraid, I realised that I was just missing you. You have always been my soul and just around the corner, and I am loving. You. Enough.
Take 3: I am married to my work and my life and this treacherous process of finding myself. Sometimes I wish I could trade it in for a fling. Something cheap and light and memorable, but not really.
I am stuck here in this life with all these myriads of little promises that now, I have to live up to. All these yeses and hopes and dreams.
Take 4: I have always been your escape route Call me. You know exactly what that means.
