Sitting here silent,
thoughts of you play within my head
like the movies we always used to watch,
like the television shows
I'd have to drag you away from.
I watch different shows now
and you're not here
for me to share them with.
It took me a while
to grow accustomed to that.
I still turn in expectation of you 
and a certain comment
I know you'd make out of habit.
And people look at me funny
wondering what I'm looking for
and I have to explain it's a who,
not a what.
But they don't care
and no one seems to understand.
I'm not even sure
if you'd understand anymore.
You say I've changed,
but I still feel the same.
I think it's you that's changed,
you that's moved away.
My friends say that people tend to do that
in our given situation,
but that is something I cannot accept
for when have we ever done
what was expected of us
in a given situation?
I'm not even sure
of where I am right now,
of what I'm doing.
I need something to remind me
of who I was, who I am.
I need something familiar,
a home base where I can feel safe.
What I'm trying to say 
is that I still need you
despite what I've said.
So, please come back to me?
I'll be waiting
in the glow of the television
watching our favorite shows...
