the first words spoken are soft and weak.

don't wanna miss you for the wrong reasons

the first words spoken

are soft and weak

air pushed through lips

all the fire behind them

long burnt out

forgotten

i don't want to say i didn't miss you

because i did

i felt your absence

like pebbles in my lungs

making everyday breathing

just a little bit harder

but i didn't miss you

in the same way you missed me

there was no need

there was no desperation

i could leave

i had the good and the best

and i held on to it

while you let all your hope

slip through your fingers

like wind singing through the trees

like grasping and grasping

at nothing

like watching your hopes crumple

the tallest buildings tumble

and not knowing how to rebuild in such an aftermath

i didn't want to miss you for the wrong reasons

so i didn't miss you at all
