There are times in your life when people you like disappear, vanish into the wind as if they were like a feather flowing wherever the breeze may take them. Sometimes you chase them much like a child who is playing, sometimes you let them glide off with a wave good-bye even when you want them to stay. A loss of contact however brief or however long creates a craving and aching within you, this is when you MISS THEM!
There are sayings out in the world ‘everything happens for a reason’ or how about ‘if it’s meant to be it’ll be.’ Now I’m not here to tell you whether these sayings are in fact true, wise, or completely and utterly wrong. But the meaning behind these quotes makes you think you’re not in charge of your future, your actions are not needed and that you should simply wait for whoever and whatever to happen out of a stroke of luck, Serendipity.
What if all it took was being true to yourself and your feelings and running to catch that feather, place it in your pocket and keep it with you to cherish?!
Or what if this ‘everything happens for a reason’ is a good approach?! Maybe that person you let go will save you from trouble, heartache, and hardship. It’s up to each person to find their answer and see what works best for them and the person they’re missing.
I Miss You
Even when I know we’re different, sometimes too different with our views and the way we think (‘the opposite’ I may as well call it) I still have that ‘missing you’ feeling. I let you go because I fear the unknown with you, because I fear we’re too different.
- When problems arise I approach with communication, when you flee to let time pass not really solving anything.
- When our morals for certain things clash, I worry.
- When your actions do not follow what you say, like when you come around and say you miss me at times but rarely make an effort to actually see me, I worry!
- I worry that you might not be trustworthy. I feel this way because too much time has passed without even a simple hello and the trust between us is still too new and is in the process of being built.
- When I see in your eyes that there are feelings but you’re too prideful to share them, I worry!
…And with all this worry, I find myself still missing you! I think of the few good times, the times you were actually there, and that’s what I miss! But unfortunately the bad outweigh the good and that’s when I become mad that I miss you. It’s stupid really! It makes me sick (figuratively speaking) that I still want you in my life even with all this grief.
…And so now it is I who is the feather, flowing effortlessly in the breeze with a secret hope that you’ll fight, chase, catch, and keep me safe in your pocket. What will you do, wave or save?
Is There Someone You Miss OR Have Missed?
Does this sound similar to an experience you might have had readers? Was there ever a time when you said good-bye and had that craving and aching feeling within your body? Did that person ever come back? did you allow them to be apart of your life again? Or have you moved on? Or are you still missing them? (I know! it’s a lot of questions, but I only ask the gazillion questions to help you to reflect back to that once upon a time).
Take care readers!
