bus tickets
collected in jars
line my hallway shelves

toothpaste
forgotten
in my bathroom cabinet
peppermint twist

wilted clovers
in aged photographs
tucked away
in leather-bound books

green tea
sits in a glass bottle
in my fridge
unopened

apology notes
scribbled on the back
of water bottle wrappers
sit in a shoe box
under my bed

I wonder
when I’ll see you
again


The author's comments:

Contrary to what you might think, this isn't about  romantic type of love. I wrote this about siblings, and what it's like when they grow up and start to live seperate lives.

I'm glad I clicked on this. Beautiful writing- your sidenote made it all the more meaningful and relatable to me.
