[POEM] how to not say “I miss you” in a poem

how to not say “I miss you” in a poem

say nothing
do nothing
you’ve done enough damage
and so has he

Just because it’s right doesn’t mean it feels good
Just because it’s wrong doesn’t mean it feels that way
let yourself feel the pain
take a moment and get lost in his
tongue on your most secret places
the soft skin below the arc of his brow
the brightness in his eyes when he made you laugh
the words, “I love you.”

but realize it’s just a dream
it never happened
and never will again
he’s not real
and he desperately wants you
not to be either.
