Differences Of Time

“Maybe all I can really say
is ‘I miss you.'”

So, I don’t really know
what I’m trying to say.
I just feel like everything
is so different these days.
Nothing is right.
The way it used to be.
The way it should be.
Most of the time
I don’t even know
if you see me the way
you did in the beginning.
Because I’m an entirely
different person.
Certainly not for the better.
Maybe all I can really say
is “I miss you.”

I don’t even know who it is I’ve become.

  1. Weird stuff just pops in my mind. Someone once said while cleaning out your closet things are going to get messy and more than likely look like more of a disaster than when you start but if you keep going eventually you will clear the clutter and it will all be worth it. Don’t sit down in a half cleaned room and think this is it. If you are going through hell keep going and you will reach the other side and those who love you will still love you no matter what.

  2. I think you’ve captured perfectly our personal evolution through life. In some cases we experience many of these ‘i don’t recognize myself’ phases but still retain memories of those who touched us in some way. Beautifully penned!
