I want you to sit besides me today.
I want you to pat my back and tell me to get up, to dust off the sorrow, to make way for light.
I want it to be like it was, in those days, just you and me, together forever. But of course, forever is a lie.
I want to tell you all those stories that you’ve missed out on.
I want to share with you anything and everything.
I want to relive the past with you.
I want to see you, to touch you, to feel your body rub against mine.
I want to play with you again, like we did then. Then. It feels so long and gone now.
Perhaps, now should’ve been a beginning to a new life, a new era. But I just can’t feel it.
All I want is to feel comforted by your presence. I want to wrap myself up in your fur once again.
I’ve always resented change and you know it so well. I can’t handle change. And the change wasn’t even normal. It was large. It was EXTRAVAGANT!!
Yes, it was my fault to not be by your side when you needed me the most. But baby, I’m sorry, can you forgive me for that? It’s too much to ask for, but I know that you’ve got a very big heart. An heart unlike mine. So much unlike mine, my dear.
I want to see you again…..
