The Things We Still Remember

Fri, 05/30/2014 - 11:56 -- stodd16



We keep best friends in 5 places


1. Our mothers' costume jewelry boxes we used in elementary school

            a) plastic earrings

            b) halloween rings

2. Beneath pillows and blankets of summertime whispers

3. Across the lines of our diaries

            -the ones we like to go back to every once in a while

4. In our palms, painted over purple nail polish

5. In pictures, notes, colored pencils, strawberries, hair ties and lemonade

            ie: things we keep in the back of our mind until the next rainy day
