What it Feels Like to Miss You

Updated on February 1, 2017

It's autumn, so you know what that means? Cold nights, pumpkin patches, hot chocolate on the way to church on Sunday mornings, haunted houses, cuddle dates, and Eskimo kisses.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I miss you extra right now. Starting college has been a little rough and stressful, and I just want you to hold me and make the outside world disappear if only for a moment.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I got into an A Cappella group on campus! It's so fun getting close with all the girls in my group. I want you to come see every one of my concerts because I want to share my happiness with you.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I thought I saw you today. For a split second I forgot and my heart skipped a beat. For a split second, all reasoning and logic left me. I thought I saw you today.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I just got off the phone with you. Your friends were there too. I saw them sitting next to you. Touching you. I want to touch you. To hold your hands in mine. Kiss you.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

My roommates are gone for the night, and I'm alone in my dorm. It's dark and quiet (well, about as quiet as a dorm room can get). I could really use your company.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I finally succumbed to the flu that everyone and their mother has. I'm congested, my head hurts, and I'm tired all the time. I just want to take a nap with you more than anything in the world.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I see your Facebook photos. They're usually of you and some friends in a funny pose or matching shirts. It's weird to know that your best friends are people I've only ever seen pictures of. You talk about them a lot. I wish I could meet them.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I'm at my first real college party. There are things here that I'm not comfortable with. My friends are making sure that I'm okay, but I wish you'd pick me up and we'd go watch Netflix where I know I'm safe in your arms.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

You send me Snapchat pictures, but it's nothing like seeing your face in person. I want to hold your cheeks and look into your blue eyes and tell you how much I love you.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

You're busy a lot. Which is fine, I am too. But you tell me about how stressed you are, and I can't do anything about it. I want to hold you and comfort you.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I found a cologne sample in a magazine. It wasn't the kind you use, but it smelled like you. I wish I could lay there with my head on your chest with the comforting smell of you surrounding me.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I miss our church. I miss the pastor, I miss the people, I miss the sense of community, and I miss the drives there every Sunday. I wish you were home so we could go to church together

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

My friends are in long distance relationships too. They can relate to me more than most people can. Their boyfriends come visit them on weekends, and I know you'd visit me too.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I can't even predict when all this is going to end. There'll be several more years of this. I don't know when I'll be able to see you for more than one or two weeks at a time, and I want to talk to you about it and cry and hold you and tell you not to leave me again.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I got an A on my exam today! Woohoo! I want to go out and celebrate with you because I know that you're excited for me.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

You have a concert today. You told me that you have some solos in it. I love watching you on stage, it makes me so proud. I really want to come and support you.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

We are both broke college students. We can't afford to buy round-trip airplane tickets to see each other on the weekends. I would hug the crap out of you right now.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I miss your laugh. I miss your little giggle every time I tickle you. I miss seeing your eyes light up with laughter and your dimples grow deeper in your cheeks as you push me away playfully and then get a determined look on your face as you seek revenge on me.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.

I love the times we get to video chat. I love seeing your face. I miss it. I want to just attack you with kisses and snuggle right next to you.

Except that you're 2234 miles away.
