it’s hard to know how you feel when you’re only seventeen years old.
it’s hard to know what you want. in the past, i’ve wanted you, but not in the same way i do now.
now, i want to call you my friend, my best friend. well, one of them at least.
i want you to be my confidant. i want to tell you (and only you) whenever something arises. i’d call you and we’d think of solutions or laugh it off.
i want to binge scary movies with you, staying up until 3 am because we’re too afraid to fall asleep.
i don’t want you like i used to. i used to want to hold you, to run my hands through your hair.
but, i don’t anymore.
at least, i think i don’t i do.
i don’t want to dance in the rain with you; i don’t want to trace the lines in your hands.
i want to know everything about you, but not know all of you. i don’t need that anymore.
if you read this, which i’m sure you won’t, you’ll definitely won’t think it’s you that i’m talking about and that’s okay.
i just know now, as i’m lying in bed writing this, that i don’t need you anymore. at least, not in the way i did when i was sixteen.
