Can't Help But Miss You

Even though you hate me
I continuously look back to see if you miss me
You spread your hatred for me to anyone who will listen
You plaster your loathing for me so loudly that it's hard to ignore
And everytime I see your face I can't help but remember how it was mine
Just for a short time but mine none the less
How that one touch between us had so much raw emotion
I still feel the occasional spark from thinking about it
But instead of seeing your face smiling at me
All I can feel is your scorn
I don't know what I did so wrong
But I wish with all my heart I could take it back
Cause it physically hurts me to see you there
Just a reach away
Yet I know if I reach out to you
You'll just pull away
And even though everyone tells me to stop caring
I can't help but miss you
Cause the truth is
You were the closest thing
That could change my life from self destruction
