i want to bake a strawberry pie. i want to blend sugar in the sunlight. i want to craft stories out of my imagination. i want to waltz under stars and tango through the heat of the beach. i want to read. i want to learn. i want to grow. i want to wake up early in the morning and watch the sunrise from my roof. i want to go to bed with clean sheets and watching Netflix with you. i want to bake a strawberry pie. i want to stroll down a boardwalk. i want to smile at the sun. i want to run. i want to swim in the ocean. i want to tan on sand and cleanse myself in outdoor showers and eat icepops before dinner. i want to go back to the city. i want to bake a strawberry pie.

you may be my number two
but I still can't believe you wanted me to be one
of your lucky girls. It was barely three
days before
you said you'd wanted me for five
months. Now in four
days I have to leave you three
thousand miles away. Is it too
soon for you to be my one?

my mother told me
love is simply: terrified
they could go away
