my skin tingles listening to acoustic guitar
playing through my half-broken earbuds
i close my eyes and imagine i'm there
standing in a crowd of music fans
singing along to songs of heartbreak and pickup trucks

somewhere in nashville, tennesseee
is a meat and three dish i'll try to finish
i can almost hear the sound of country tunes
almost sense the energy of "let's do this"

but mostly i am called to the smoky mountains
my picture of what home should look like
is trees for miles and river or two
now i'm scrolling through google images with tears in my eyes
my daydreams have been there this whole time

can i make this far-fetched notion come true?
it's ridiculous that a girl from a fly-over town in northern california
who's scared of spiders and trying new things
would try to move across the country to a place she's never known

but i still hold onto this foolish hope
i can't release this wish i have started to crave
i'll collect fantasies like petals until i can let them loose
flying up to the skies of tennesee
Yeah I'm daydreaming about Tennessee again. Sorry if this becomes a pattern.

    Honestly, I wish I could buy you a plane ticket so you could go visit Tennessee! You really show how much you love the state! I hope you get to visit it someday.

    Also, on an unrelated note, finally fulfilling my dream of learning the guitar! I'm learning how to strum right now (I know literally nothing about guitar) :D

    Replying: Thanks for the love on my older pieces! Some of those were for a poetry unit in English class and I'm kinda ashamed of them lol but figured why not publish? I have definitely improved as a poet though!

    It doesn’t sound snobbish, don’t worry! I lived in Indiana for a while and it was called the Midwest, so that was kinda what I was going off of. ;)

    I know this feeling. Go live in Tennessee, go chase the skies. It’s beautiful. Trust me, the Midwest is one of the most beautiful places in America—or the world, in my opinion! You will love it, there’s snow in the winters and beautiful summers. Just you wait! Go chase the Tennessee skies!
