you made me want to miss you today.
the words you said demanded me to
forgive you and wrap myself around your finger
i did not beckon to your call.
i did not even glance your way.
your words are thin air and
they do not fill me up anymore
and they never will.
i was compelled to miss you today
but i gripped my heart close to my chest
and walked away
head held high
grace swarming my every step.
you tried to turn me into a pillar of salt
but i’ve learned where my true treasures are
and they are not
in your arms.
