i remember of younger days,
where maths and history and passing
exams are all i have to worry,
and pointless dramas are all i have
to indulge in.

the sun was high and sunny and shined
on our rough skin, and sweats on our palms
disappeared when we laughed.
(remember that, remember that?)

the steps we took walking in a
group, as a unity like no other, and the
way we made that girl who dumped you
jealous- because
what we had, she craved.

those conversations and those
plans that never came true- "let's get
out of this godforsaken town"- that was
years ago.

so, so young.

i remember.

(wherever you are),
do you?
