we’re looking at the stars because we like to
remind ourselves of the things that are
strong enough to burn through the darkness.
our legs are pressed together and we’re holding hands 
just so we remember to feel something tonight and 
all i ever needed was this, just me and you and 
nothing else. i want to spend as long as i can laughing
into the skin of your shoulder because the only other thing
i ever could have done was cry and there’s no time
for that tonight. i want us to sit, sipping soda
from the same straw and asking all the questions
that matter. you’re telling me why you never really
liked your father and my hair is blowing in the wind
and for the first time i think i may have done something
right. we talk about regrets and you ask me if given the
chance to do it all over again, would i leave everything the 
same and i think i would, just for the right here, 
the right now, the mess of a girl i had to be to stumble 
my way right into your arms. and you’re not perfect, 
and i’m not naive, and we both know our hearts can't 
swell like this forever, but we’re strong enough to hang
on for another day, and that’s all that either of us cares about. 
i think this is the kind of love that disappears soft and 
beautiful and fast like the setting sun and maybe i’ll forget
you. but i’ll always carry you with me, the boy who knew
all my ugly and stayed. i think if we’re lucky, memories of
nights like these will always come back to us when
we need them. someday someone will look at me like
they want to crack my soul open to the core and for just
a split second, i’ll remember the exact color of your eyes.
