I miss you. I miss us. I miss the feel of your lips on the back of my neck. I miss sharing the moonlight walks on the beach. I miss experiencing the music. I miss how you completed me. Why did you have to lie to me? To lead me on? Why couldn't all of what we had have been real? I miss your poems, I miss your notes. I look at the moon and can't think of anyone but you, my lover. I miss feeling at one with you, when we made love, it was like we ceased to exist as individuals, but became a whole new entity. One of pure love. To think that while we had that, you were experiencing another woman. How could you look me in the eye, make me feel like I was the only one, and still be with her? Do you know how much I miss you? How much I miss the love I felt for and from you? Do you know? I struggle with wanting you back in my life, so I don't have to be alone. So I could have that connection again. What if I am making a huge mistake by not taking you back? But I know it would be a mistake. You are still you. You are not good for me. The love is, but the reality is not. When we are together, alone, away from the world, it is perfect. But when we are out in the world, we are not good together. I will not be degraded, controlled, told how to live. I will not be patronized by you. I still cry when I hear certain songs. We had two years together, my dear. I can't just forget how you impacted my life, brought me back to life and taught me how to love again. To help me remember that I can love and deserve to be loved. For that, I will be forever grateful. But I know we can never be together again. We can never be friends. Our season is over. Please go your way, and I will go mine.

It is time to say goodbye. Goodbye, my lover. May you always remember the wildflowers. I know I will.
