The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website



Kimberly Hunt

She can't make you feel 
like I do. 
That's what I tell myself 
about you. 
She can't love you 
the way that I do. 
That's what I try to 
make myself believe 
about you. 
I try to make me 
forget that she exists. 
I try to pretend 
that we will be together again. 
But she is always 
on my mind. 
A strange obsession with 
a woman I've never met. 
is always in my thoughts. 
I wonder if she showers 
you with kisses like I once did. 
I wonder if she rubs your 
back while lying in bed, 
the way I always did. 
I wonder if she makes love 
like I do. 
I wonder if she hears 
the same professions of 
faithfulness that I heard. 
I wonder if she 
really loves you. 
Even if she does, 
there's no way she loves 
you like I do. 
She could never be me. 
And one day, 
you will see. 
You will sit and miss me. 
One day... 
When she isn't there. 
And all that remains 
are the thoughts of me. 
And how she 
could never compare. 
You could never love 
her like you love me. 
And you will always 
miss me much more. 
No matter how much 
you try to pretend.
