I Don't Miss You

I Don't Miss You

A Poem by Hannah Paige

I saw you the other day 
in a basement lined with smoke
It was the first time in a year
and I could barely even look
We haven't spoken since last fall
but I heard you're doing well
And maybe it's not fair to say
but babe I'm proud as hell.

And I don't miss you but I might at well.
And I don't love you but I remember how it felt.

I got drunk the other night
and forgot how to sleep
I closed my eyes and waited
but it never came to me
I thought I'd dream of you
but I don't remember how you sound
So I listen to the absence 
of your voice in my house.

And I don't miss you but I might as well.
And I don't love you but I remember how it felt.

I saw you the other night
on a bookshelf lined with dust
The photograph had faded
and a crease divided us
I shuffled through that old shoebox
found some ribbon and your shirt
And I tried to read your letters
but I couldn't bare the words.

And I don't miss you but I might as well.
And I don't love you but I remember how it felt.
