MISSED YOUMissed you leaving scracthing my heart for so long. Missing you is drugging my brain, even though we dont get together often knowing that you are with me is warming inside of me for long I understand newly. Your absence, get out of being a stucked pain into my heart (appeared) as a continually emptiness, begining to the mornings with caressing you in the evenings putting everything aside, but talking with you, I miss them. Our playings, our walks, your sweet naughtiness, your childish offendings. How you were strong to others, while defending me and how you were tender with a couple of slitted eyes, when you leave yourself to my caresses. Even though I never want you to go to see that you have to do that, and without saying you those to say ‘go now’, as soon as you forget me, that soon you will meet the happiness. Haw hard to say to you. Not to be able to see you and maybe after years, when we met to want you to look at me as a stranger, and to deal with my heart that i forbid another love.
