I miss it. Don’t you? The early mornings filled with the smell of your dad’s black coffee, the after-school ritual of riding the bus with the windows down with your ride-or-dies and screaming Paramore and Selena Gomez lyrics to the strangers outside. I didn’t know it back then, that I would be this way. I think it happened when I met him. I didn’t know it at the time, but he would change my life. I didn’t know how badly I would want to make him laugh; I had no idea how badly I wanted him to feel the same. I had no idea love would be the thing that changed me.
