Note To Self: Burn This
Can you give me permission to speak my mind and promise you won’t judge a word?
First. I love you.
For the time we laid on the grass together and
When you walked me home in the rain and
When you stayed up all night to talk to me and
When you make me laugh or smile and
For always being so bright- maybe you’re my sun
Second. I’m sorry.
Because I’ll probably never tell you any of this and
‘Cause I probably confuse you as much as I confuse myself and
‘Cause I don’t know why I feel like crying right now and
‘Cause I don’t know why I’m even awake right now and
Because I don’t know why I’m writing this at all
Third. I miss you.
Even though it’s only been a week since I last saw you or heard your voice
But I miss your smile and the way your voice purrs when you’re being serious
And I miss the way you radiate heat when it’s cold
And I miss the feelings of comfort when I’m in your company, and
Even though it’s only a day until you return, I can’t help but feel anxious
I love you.
I miss you.
And maybe I’ll burn this when you come back.
