Someone I Still Talk To

I miss you

but how could I tell you that? 
I have tried and I know that the words I have said were simply “I miss you”
But what I meant when I said them..

I don’t know how to say those things
Or really
That I even should

Because the fact that you still talk to me makes my heart heavy with a joy
and a sadness that I can distinguish from any other kind of pain
That I have ever felt before

I miss you
means so much to me but it doesn’t mean the same to you
And why should it?

It has been so long

I miss you means that I can still say I miss you 
To You 
when we talk and that I still wish that I could say
“I love you” or “Goodnight”
or..”See you soon”

But I won’t see you soon

I might never see your face again
And both of us as we live in separate worlds just moments apart from the other person will hold a truth to us like armor 
that we knew each other once
and that once
(even though we never said it
we know..)

 has to have been enough

This poem is about: 
Me
