I Miss You

It’s only been a few days,
And I know I should be patient,
Give you the space you have asked for,
And while I wholeheartedly respect that,
I still miss you,
I see you in every pocket of my day,
Making mental lists of all the things I wish I could tell you,
My finger hesitates over your name on the phone,
I miss you,
Your laughter echoes in my mind,
Your breath lingers on my skin,
Holding your hand, massaging your scalp,
I miss you,
Seeing other couples only makes me miss you more,
Sending you sweet morning messages,
I feel shut out and it stings,
I just miss you….
