You don't miss them.
You miss the idea of them and the idea of how things used to be.

Because how could an illusion be seen as a reality?

When they planted seeds of pain in your heart and left you broken.
They weren't there for you when you had to learn how to nurture your pain and glue pieces of your broken heart back together.
Eventually, your pain grew into something beautiful.
Now, they want to return when they've seen your beauty.

Grow without them?!
F U C K that.
Letting go isn't so easy for everyone.
