heyy. i'm just a little girl from a little town. i do stupid shit and my brain is all sorts of fucked. that's all.
there should be a two year period after high school where it is socially expected that kids not work or go to school or do anything but take road trips, read books, meet new people, and take lots of pictures

I want you to think about me when you’re setting your alarm.
When you’re brushing your teeth.
On your way to work when you see a girl with a red umbrella.
Because you remember that I love red.
I want you to miss the taste of my skin every time you touch someone else’s.
Think about me when you’re tempting her with words you sang to my ears.
I want you to look at pictures of last summer,
And long for the days we spent at the lake.
I want you to recall that day we woke up together, happy and silly,
And went on that hike with our friends,
In such a way that makes your heart thump two extra times,
Once because that memory makes you happy,
And once because it makes you sad.
I want you to text me when you’re drunk.
I want you watch our favorite movie, and reminisce about those nights we tried to watch it, but became distracted in each other’s embrace.
I want you to think about the funny things I’d say to you when you say something stupid or call me a name.
I want you to look over at whoever lay in your bed, and wish it was me. To stop yourself from saying my name when you’re inside her.
I want you to think of my face when you are trying to sleep.
To long for my arms around you,
To be softly sad over all that we could have been, but weren’t.
To regret what you did to change that.
I want you to think of those nights we first met,
Remember the lustful and excited fire that ignited inside you,
Made you long for me more than people in the city long to see stars.
I want you to secretly wish for next summer,
Hopeful of finding that fire again.
Praying that I haven’t found someone in the meantime.
I want you to want me.
Because all I can do is want for you.
