I can’t miss you, I don’t even know you.
I don’t know that your favourite ice-cream is mint chocolate chip, because you could have suddenly developed a love for neapolitan.
I don’t know that you bite your lip because of your scar, someone else could have made you feel okay about it.
I don’t know that you’re afraid that people won’t like you every time you meet them, maybe everyone loves you, maybe not, maybe you just don’t care anymore.
Forrest Gump could have gotten boring.
You could have started eating pickles.
You could have stopped missing me,
because you don’t know me anymore either.

"That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I’d just run across the great state of Alabama. And that’s what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going." - Forrest Gump, 1994
