“It is possible to miss someone and still not want them in your life.”

I feast on emotions, sitting at the table with my
Insecurity and sorrow
All the happiness that I have ever contained or
Overflowed with
Staring into the eyes of loneliness
Who makes a toast to determination
It has become a practice to savor the
Bittersweet sensation of nostalgia
Holding independence and a desire to love
In a single embrace
These guests that come and go
Take a seat and then
Walk to the back patio for a smoke break
While I remain glued to this table
Desperate to never miss a minute
To forget the numbness of satiation
Tasting each unit piece of
Sensational company
