The phrase ‘I miss you’ seems too weak for some situations. It doesn’t capture that feeling of chaos and minor catastrophe caused by the absence of a true love or however you call them. To give the phrase more depth, sometimes you need to add props or a few extra words. For example:
1. Morse Code
– to adroitly communicate your anxiety, anguish and general gloom.
– particularly if you’re an ‘eat-for-comfort’ kind of person.

3. Personalized playlists
– hey, it worked for Nick and Norah.
4. Personalized artwork
– if your dj skills were only so-so.
5. Talking monsters
– if your artwork wasn’t as magnificent as you had planned.

6. Calculations of distance
– forget the arts; math can be romantic too.

7. Pictures of you crossing that distance
– or the ‘metaphor of you’ (in this case, a rabbit on a bicycle).
8. Positive thinking.
via Rar Rar Press
9. A footnote
– to clarify what you really mean by ‘I miss you’.
10. Specific details
– what exactly do you miss?
11. Confessions of fear
– nothing says ‘I miss you’ like having dreams of death and destruction, the products of an exaggerated imagination that is sleeping alone.

12. Just to clarify: those were bad dreams.
