I know what you would say

“You’re perfect” or “Don’t change”

I need those words; but to believe them

is the hardest part

and especially so now that

you’re gone–and I still remain

The lingering echoes of

you in my mind, quite honestly, drives

me insane. But on those quiet,

cold nights, I like to tell myself

that I have value, I don’t need to change.

it’s ironic.

Even though you’ve left me,

those lingering echoes of you

still persist.

And I can’t help butย  believe that maybe,

just maybe,

i’m not alone.
