Where Were You When I Needed Someone

Disclaimer: The below work is a piece of fiction written by me, nothing is insanely wrong in my life for it to be applied to it.  I just felt a need to jot these words down as they were fresh in my mind.  Feelings, emotions, thoughts, words all float in my head right before I attempt to sleep so why not.

Where were you when I needed someone to talk to? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to lean on? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to wipe my tears? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to laugh along with me? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to hug out my pain? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to just be there? Where were you?

Seriously, where were you?

Now I no longer need you to talk to, because I carry on a wiser conversation all by myself.

Now I no longer need you to lean on, because my body has found a new strength.

Now I no longer need you to wipe my tears, because nothing is worth those precious tears.

Now I no longer need you to laugh along with me, because laughing alone brings a new type of joy.

Now I no longer need you to hug out my pain, because I feel no pain.

Now I no longer need you to just be there, because I’m there.

I am stronger, wiser, smarter, and so much more now that you are no longer here.
