I missed You

I missed you for so long,

and so bad 

but I realized 

It was not you that I missed.

Or the lover You were

But I missed the Love 

I was in,

and that Love was,

entirely mine-

You were but, a mirror-

where I could see

reflection of my own affection.


Where you existed in me,

is a vacant space now-

but that doesn’t make you irreplaceable-

For in winters,

a hand needs a glove

and a dove needs a dove.

My old love,
