we grew up together playing house, i remember one night you called me your king and i called you mine. it was nothing but a growing, childhood love. my star projector let us count stars on my bedroom ceiling until we were old enough to sneak out, lay on park benches and count the ones in the sky. our heads touching each other was the only thing that could help me fall asleep. time never stopped for us, even if it did feel like it when we held hands, we grew taller and eventually, not even the warmth of my arms was enough for you. we grew up and apart. i waited for you one summer night on that bench, closing my eyes, pretending my hand touching the tip of my head was yours. the sun began to rise and you never came. i dreamt that you came and we counted the stars again. i wanted to count your eyelashes again and see how many galaxies your eyes held again, but i couldn't. everything has faded again and the only time i see you now is when i close my eyes.
inspired by nap of a star by txt.
the song itself is beautiful and inspired me to write this piece, which is now a favorite piece i've written.
