i waited for that
small, electronic
lifeline kept inside
my pocket
to squirm
like a child
embarrassed by the
kisses his mother
forced upon his cheek.
letting me know
you missed me
at least a little.
even though i knew
i had left it
on silent.

This is a great poem. A great metaphor and way of describing something so simple. It just goes to show you don't need lengthy descriptions and verses to make a poem sound sentimental. This is one of the most heartfelt poems I've heard in a long time and it was done so effortlessly.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

i love this poem. i know every comment on here is probably saying that they can relate and i am going to say the same thing. i totally can. but i think there comes a time when you meet that special someone and you dont have to be told that they miss you but you just know because they love you and that will never go away. great piece of writing:)

I wanna carry a piece of who I was before so when I hit the wall, I REALLY hit the wall.

I like the soul to it, it's not lengthy and get's right to the point. And it also expresses every emotion that someone has had at some point- the feeling that you want to be missed.
