I miss you

by Kimberly Ang

I never knew that I could miss you like this; that every cell in my body knows that you’re not here, like every breath catches in my throat and I cannot breathe fully. Like every fibre of my being aches for your comforting touch, knowing you’re near but yet so far away. You’re within my reach but I cannot get to you.

I know no number of sweet emails, love songs, sappy dramas or loving texts could make up for the fact that you aren’t here right now.

It’s like friday can’t come fast enough.
