I don’t love you, I just don’t

I don’t love you. But I miss you,
like how raindrops can’t wait to fall
and touch the ground on a summer.

I don’t love you. But I’m attached,
Roots deeply planted below
A grip so firm, a knot difficult to untie.

I don’t love you. But my eyes,
They lurk around and follow
Each footstep we took on the latter days.

I don’t love you. But the songs,
They mean so much
That teardrops roll down my cheeks.

I don’t love you. But the memories,
Yes, they linger
And yes, they remain.

I don’t love you.
But you don’t know
How much I want to hold you.

I don’t love you.
I just don’t.
But I want you here with me.

xoxo
