for the longest time she was all I had-

pineapple bits and marshmallow bites

farmhouse noise and cake mix explosions

shawn mendes by the lake

snakes under the tent.


for the longest time that was enough-

now conversations are awkward

texts don’t go beyond the greeting

dresses and football are too child like now

red cherry trucks aren’t cool.


grown up.
grown apart.
the words have overlapped so perfectly.
