From Our Readers: When You're Missing Someone Badly
Have you ever felt that hold a person can have on you? Not that ordinary kind of hold. That kind where you can't eat or sleep or even think straight? Well, I have. He was so ordinary, so simple. He who took my broken heart and tried to mend it. But maybe I was only imagining things?
I still remember the night I first saw him. Was it love at first sight? Or am I talking nonsense? The moment our eyes met it felt like the world around me stopped. It was magical, and now it has turned into a beautiful nightmare.
Are you even missing me? or thinking about me? I know I am. I miss you so much. Your stares, your laughter, your jokes, our little talks, our kisses, and so many more. I miss them all. I miss you.
Can't you hear the sound of my heart beating from where you are? It's deafening and I wish it can make you come back to me.
Remember every time we fought because of my little insecurities? You would always assure me and tell me how beautiful I was. How my laughter was so infectious that just the sound of it made you laugh too. I hope you never forgot about that because I, myself, can't forget.
I miss you, please come back to me.
Remember the talks we've had? You would tell me stories about your cat, Mingming. I laughed at how pathetic the name of your cat was and you would only continue telling me your stories. I saw how happy you were. Your eyes twinkled brightly while you were at it. Was that the last time I can see your eyes burning brightly?
Remember our silly fights? Our weird talks about life? My temper? Are you even thinking of me right now? Because I am. I am imagining how our life could have been. We were so happy then. What happened along the way?
I miss you. I can say those three words forever as long as you'd come back. Please. You are so far away from me and the distance is killing me. The silence between us is torture, and our memories feel like they're burying me alive.
I miss you, please come back.
