You or Me

I woke up from a dream last night
I would’ve forgotten you
If it weren’t for the dream
It was the last day of school
And everyone was crying because they
Had to say goodbye for three months
I saw you in the midst of it all
“Call me,” you said
I said goodbye
And gave you no hug

I woke up, startled
And realized I DID miss you
So we had that 3 hour
Freeze dried phone conversation
We couldn’t see each other…
Until 8th grade started
So you could be patient!
Even though I’m not

It was weird how we became friends
You assumed wrong when you
Thought I was staring at you
(I REALLY wasn’t…just spacing out)
And I just said we could be friends
Then we exchanged numbers
Too bad we couldn’t talk much
Since there was no time

Things got AWKWARD
After 8th grade progressed on
What happened?
All I know is it’s not my fault
It couldn’t be yours
Well, we have no classes together
And I’m forbidden to call boys now
So whether it’s you or me
Someone should destroy
The wall between us
