1 year ago - I remember you messing up your locker combination over and over again, just to make me laugh;
11 months ago - I remember you taking every opportunity you could to talk to me, even about the simplest things. You were so nervous, but honestly, so was I;
10 months ago - I remember you finally getting up the nerve to take the next step but getting too nervous and backing out before anything too serious happened;
9 months ago - I remember keeping in touch with you the whole summer and, in August, being alone together for the first time. You wouldn't dare make a move just yet, though. You had a plan;
8 months ago - I remember being back in school together, growing closer, falling faster;
7 months ago - I remember you being too scared to say a word, so I'd always be the one to start up conversations. But finally, one September night, I remember being alone at that football game and you putting your arm around mine;
And 6 months ago - I wish I could forget, because that's when you and I fell apart.
Since then, it's been 26 painfully tense weeks /
183 days of anxious avoidance / 4,380 hours of regret /
262,800 minutes of missing the way things used to be.
But through all this time,
all these billions of seconds later,
I still get that same exact feeling
every time I hear your name.
And I guess what I'm getting at is:
is it really that foolish of me to believe that
you could still feel the same?
I know that it's been 6 whole months since we fell apart,
but after all, it did take us that same amount of time
to fall together.
