"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."


I'm slowly forgeting
what used to be
in the world that we lived in
before we broke free

When decisions were simple
there's right and there's wrong
when the bad days were short
and the summers so long

I remember the day time
we'd spend in the park
waiting for sunsets
we'd stay out till dark

I remember the worst times
a scrape on the knee
but through my crying eyes
I'd see you there for me

I remember while growing
I became someone new
you said you still loved me
I said that's not true

I remember how I tried
to push you away
I sreamed loud "I hate you!"
but you always stayed

I remember I got in
to my first school choice
we screamed and we hugged
till we both lost our voice

I remember us hugging
as we said goodbye
I'm grown now, in collage
not too grown to cry

This is about my mother and I's relationship. We're best friends, but sometimes I miss the good days in our youth. I haven't gotten to collage yet, but I flashed forward a bit.
