I wish people could just say how they feel like ‘Hey I really don’t like when you do that to me’ or ‘Hey I’m in love with you’ or ‘Hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time’ without sounding desperate. Why can’t everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble.
"Do you remember that time
we laid out on your front lawn
with the sound of waves all around us
and looked up at the thousands of stars
above our heads?
We swore up and down we’ve never seen
anything so beautiful
as we talked about the universe
and pretended we knew what life really means.
Well, I laid out on the grass tonight
and looked at the thousands of stars
which don’t seem to shine as brightly
without the sound of the ocean or
you by my side and
thought about how I really know nothing
about life, nothing at all.
I like to think you did the same
your eyes turned to the sky,
your mind fixed on me
even though you’re probably
walking back from a bar right now,
your head spinning, your tongue thick with alcohol,
maybe with a girl on your arm,
unaware of the ocean,
or the stars,
or of me.
