I Can Still Feel Your Ghost

I could never get rid of you

The way you smiled

How you laughed,

the short chuckle that would follow after

Your comforting stare 

I could never get rid of it

 

I could never get rid of it all

My mind pained me to remember 

Who you were

How you left 

How much love dripped from your words

How much it meant to feel your warmth

But I took it all for granted

 

You took it all with you

 

I could never get rid of the pictures

I see you everywhere

In the morning sun

In the hallways of my home

In the camera you sent me

But the photos are falling from the walls

Just like your final tears

 

I can still feel your lips

The warmth of the ground around you

I can still feel your cold hands

And the way your eyes went cold

as I watched the world around me fall apart 

 

I can still feel your ghost

This is an amazing poem! I felt it really deeply as I read it. I can also kind of relate to it (I'm in a long distance relationship) and although that's probably not exactly the meaning you had in mind, I can still really feel it. Great job!!!

Thank you for commenting! Actually this poem was based off a drawing that I did. When I draw something I like to give a story behind it. But the drawing itself was based on a person who I had loved for 3 years. He never dated me, he reciprocated feelings but it was onesided. I was just a person who was a rebound for him whenever he broke up with someone. Later on another girl entered the picture and permanently ripped him from my life and everyone else who knew him. He left me with a dissappointed heart. I miss him. I miss his touch in my life but it's for the better.

I definitely understand what you're saying, and you are completely right when you say that it's for the better. I totally understand how hard it is to be the rebound. To me, it takes a lot of strength to be able to acknowledge that someone wasn't right for you, and I know how hard it is to still feel strongly for them regardless. I can only imagine how difficult that must have been for you and I am so sorry that you had to go through that.

I'm sad that it happened, but at the same time I glad it did. If it wasn't for the events that happened in the past (even though it was very painful) I wouldn't have met my current boyfriend. Dating for a year and couple months now, going strong! But I have never met a person who cares and loves me so much (besides my parents) that when I talk about how much I love him I end up crying. Every single time. Because I'm so happy that someone is willing to give me the time and affection that I didn't have before.

If I may ask, how far is your long distance relationaship? How long have you been dating? If not that is totally fine, I understand!
