Missing Lover

You had me so long ago.

All it took was a simple hello and a beautiful smile.

You made me laugh.

Forgetting I was alone.

You always entertained me with those funny gestures.

And that one kiss...

Short and brief.

But how it lingered throughout time.

These are the moments I forever treasure.

These are the reasons I love you.

These are the moments I long for once more.

Loving the addict that you are can be stressful.

It can be painful and hurtful.

I miss those moments. I miss you.

It has been almost two years since I've seen the real you.

Where did you?

Please tell me you're almost home.
