This Is Just To Say
by William Carlos Williams
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
I’ve missed you for 4 years, 2 months, and 24 days.
That was the day we met. The day I realized I liked you was the day I knew I’d lose you.
I feel as though you were taken from me; by youth, by our innocence, by our immaturity, and now by a car accident. It’s only temporary and you’re getting better every day, but it’s still robbing me of time and contact with you.
I want you back, I want myself back, I want us back.
I would give anything, I would give everything for our time back, for you to have your life back as you knew it.
I think about you all the time. Everything reminds me of you. I want a life with you, whether it’s a romantic life or a friendship or even, perhaps both.
I love you.
