I love you mint chocolate ice cream big. 

always have, always will. 

 

sometimes I think I miss your old house more than you do.

 

so many summers ago

we ate brownies on your trampoline,

                                            

made my mouth

tingle

 

made your garden

blur

sunshine smooth. 

 

so many summers ago,

we wore white dresses for 

my birthday,

clenched arms around each other’s waists. 

 

we got drunk

 

on the wine

 

katie stole

 

from her stepfather. 

 

smiled so wide it hurt. 

 

forgive me,

for cuddling closer after the car wouldn’t start. 

the light was

so

soft. 

baltimore was warmer for us

dancing in the street,

waiting for the jumper cables.  

 

forgive me,

for almost sending a valentine scrawled with wistful lyrics. 

 

I can’t help but

miss

cheap red wine in pomegranate juice bottles

holding hands just because.

 

I can’t help but

want to float back to the first day of physics

 

“Is someone sitting here?”

        

“No, I don’t think so.”

        

your smile clementine bright.
