You took something from me that I miss dearly. 

We enjoyed long evenings 

cuddled up reading.

We felt content together, not seeking more.

Life was simpler

and my mind quieter.

Can we find our way back to each other? Will it ever be the same? 

Can you relinquish your hold on my precious?

Dear Internet, I want my attention span back.
