We were on and off for a long time. All of middle school, essentially, and fifth grade.
I really missed you.
It was your birthday today.
An act of faith and desperation forced me to send you a text.
You asked to talk.
I'll see you tomorrow in the library at 1:30.
Remember when we used to meet there?
I was always waiting by that shelf.
Then you told me how you liked me with my hair down and I knew what it was like to fall for someone.
Humans mess up. Over and over and over again. We go to bed brokenhearted, and we rise in the morning again.
I can still feel those cracks inside of me.
But I wouldn't mind hearing your story.
I'll see you tomorrow.
