summer nights are best spent with you.
greedily scarfing down ice cream,
watching our feet touch the sky from old playground swings.
and the ones in your mom’s car
-the soft music, the hard music
singing to melodies that we’ll never know.
each night, we feel each’s wishes.
i, i want to give you fairs, and cotton candy,
and hold your hand as we walk along the sidewalk.
i want to twirl you around,
because though we’re very summer friends
i want to keep you forever.
our feet scrape the gravel,
toes tap the sidewalk,
noses breathe in the air.
distinctly, i remember something
-us in a concert,
our shoulders brushing as we danced.
i remember laughing with you in the water,
because i hated being short,
so naturally i had to climb you.
i remember every year
we laugh away these nights,
until they become memories.
they, were, definitely,
you’d give a blank look.
and then spring would come again,
and we’d be sitting in your mom’s car,
watching the sunset again.
