childhood's long forgotten

August 30, 2020


raindrop races against windowpanes
biking down quiet neighbourhood lanes
we were crowned kings and queens of playgrounds
words out of our mouths all mispronounced
frowns were forgotten on our face 
our biggest fear not to break that vase
dreams were bigger than outer space
we'd take pride that we could tie a shoelace 
our innocence wouldn't let us tell lies
we were the sun to the stars in our parent's eyes


wish i could go back to that time 
nostalgia is simultaneously the worst and best feeling ever.  

the line "dreams were bigger than outer space" is a pretty bad sentence but it was a nod to the fact that at one point in our lives we've thought ( even for a second ) that we wanted to be astronauts. - it's a big dream in outer space.

who else stayed away from that one vase/decoration that our parents had because they warned us explicitly that we would get in a lot of trouble if we broke it. so we just like stayed away? i was a very clumsy child growing up - we once went to a store and i accidentally brushed against this glass mug on a shelf, and it fell and crashed into a thousand pieces and we had to pay for it even though we weren't going to buy it - that's one of my worst memories. ( my mom was so mad lol)  

i'm thinking of making a longer version. should i? 

What are some of your childhood memories?
