Ask me what I remember and I'll tell you
I remember the way you tilted my chin up towards you to kiss me
I remember the sound of you opening the front door
your heavy footsteps creaking on the wooden floors
I remember that your favorite movie is About Time and you laughed the hardest
when I ate pizza dipped in garlic butter
I remember the first night we slept together
How I drifted off for maybe 5 minutes only to be awoken by the sheer thought that the boy I had been in love with for years was sleeping by my side
I remember holidays and beach trips and dinners in the forest
I remember wearing your t-shirts to bed
clinging to your scent the first month you moved.
I remember falling in love with you
All at once
I wrap myself in these memories at night
clinging to the hope
That you'll be back by my side
before the clock strikes midnight
