Missed is an essay written and shared by Mira Dizon to The Ugly Writers under the theme Love for the month of May.
Saying the word “I miss you” isn’t a sufficient thing. I would like to tell you that I’m madly in need of your presence. Without you by my side feels like hell. As you left, you also left a big hole inside me that I couldn’t fill. There’s no one else like you, you made me feel how special I am, how important I am. The time we spent maybe a bit short but I can say that you made me feel that there’s someone who really cares and that I am significant.
You thought me how to speak when I don’t even have a voice. You thought me how to see even when I’m blinded. You thought me how to hear things even when I’m deaf.. You even let me taste the sweetness of your lips when all I have is bitterness. You certainly rescued me from my own chaos.
I will tell you honestly that I still long for you. Our late-night talks about everything with a cup of coffee while smoking cigs will forever be in my memory. I will also miss the way we cuddled, your warm kisses, and the butterflies in my stomach whenever you stare.
I’ll always wish you happiness in spite of the struggle I am having from getting over you. I met you at my darkest but I know that you won’t need me now at my best.
