Missed You in Silence


The way I missed you wasn't a big show or anything.

I didn't yell or scream or make a scene.

I didn't key your car or throw eggs at your house.

I didn't call you drunk begging for your love.

It was more like I sat in my room and cried for awhile.

It was like drowning in memories, forgetting you can swim.

It was dialing your number but not hitting call.

It was loving you at a distance.

Checking social media to make sure you were okay.

I missed you. Of course, I missed you.

But no matter what I did, I couldn't make you come back.

So, I missed you in silence.
