Like you were never gone

Wishing, hoping.
Still barely coping.
The moment you suddenly realize that you've become so consumed by one emotion, the only way to escape is to drown it out with another.
I can't look at you without seeing everything we could've been. I can't look at you without being reminded of what we should've been. I can't look at you and not be hurt by the fact that we never were and never will be.
I can't understand why no one ever stays for long, maybe for a while, but never for long. They come and then they go, always.

"I know we haven't spoken for a while,
But I was thinking about you,
And it made me smile.'
