i miss you.

so much.

feels like i can't breathe

for wanting you back

i'm paralyzed by

the missing,

the wanting,

the longing.

only the impression of you

l i n g e r s

the smudge of a ghost

staining my soul

in shades of charcoal

and ash.

i can't shake off

this melancholic

parasite sapping

away the joy

you used to bring.

you were like springtime,

renewal,

all the things colorful

in a dishwater-painted

life.

i miss you.

and what i really mean to say

is i miss me.

'you' are 'me'

my doppelgänger.

    Using sparse lyrical and lonely words, you've painted a jarring remembrance of the narrator's former self. Relatable and touching! Beautiful work. Congratulations on TS!

    “The smudge of a ghost staining my soul” 😮 That line alone made me read this twice in a row. Great work as always, my friend!

  • Idogho Oghale2 months ago

    This poem beautifully expresses the depth of missing someone, likening it to a haunting presence that lingers in the soul. The imagery of longing and loss is vivid, painting a poignant picture of the ache for renewal and color in life. It captures the essence of missing oneself through missing another, making it a deeply resonant piece. It's pretty well written

    Incredible , Heather! Love the way you interpreted 'doppelgänger' here! ❤️

  • Paul Stewart2 months ago

    I kinda felt I knew where this was going from when I started it...this is why I love your writing, Heather, the way you evoke so many emotions and feelings from simple lines of well-chosen powerful words. You also have this way of making things feel very intimate to you, because of course they are, but also with a universal feel too, so that people can relate. Sorry I am late to the Top Story party on this one, but this is just stunning. papoose.
