I yearn for another time
With my hair a shade lighter,
Uncontrolled, spilling over my shoulders
My skin a shade darker,
Tan lines that all but glow in the light of the moon
Feet perpetually caked in dirt
My life stained with the scent of chlorine

I wish for long nights
In sweatshirts and short shorts
Spent with the people I love most in the world
The smell of sunscreen and bug spray
That always seem to fail,
No matter how hard they try

I long for a girl
Who's a lot like me
But happier
More carefree
And much, much less afraid

I want for summer
Late night conversations
Silly decisions,
Easily undone by the morning
Best friends
Doing what I love
Simply because I love it
