marine corps boyfriend

It rained the day you left.
It’s like God knew,
it’s like he felt it too.
But the water drops I saw
run down the windows as
I watched you leave,
didn’t compare to
the pools of tears
soaking into my cheeks.
The backwards roll of the tires
on the gravel
became the sound
my ears dread the most.
—  please come home

I wish I had more people to talk about all this Marine Corps stuff, it’s all so much at once. Then going from seeing my boyfriend everyday to waiting 6 months until I get to again, it’s such a different experience to be thrown in to. I mean I chose this, I love him of course, but when you step back, it’s such a drastic change
