Because You're Not Beside Me
by Megan Guimbellot
It is in the mornings when I miss you most
and lately I've been at a loss for words
because theres something about your bone structure I cant quite get over
or the way that your hands traced circles on my skin
each night after ten.
And I'm not quite sure if you do, but i hope (andwishandpray)
you know I'd travel all those miles to be in your dreams and in your bed
and if maybe
you have a thing for southern girls with dirty mouths and big smiles I'll trace the route from here to there
and meet you somewhere inbetween.
Author's Note: What I wouldn't give to be breathing the same coastal air

I'm not sure what about this grabs me, but it does.

You can feel a sense of longingness and hope with each word that is read. The last two lines are truly my favorite :)
