A Love Letter to My Crushes

There's been a lot...

Crush #1

You had big brown eyes, and swoopy hair

The kind Justin Bieber had back in the day

You’d push me on the swings at recess and give me your pudding cups at lunch

We had those stupid nicknames for each other, that we’d shout on the bus

I’d write our names together in my notebook and draw little hearts around it

Hoping you’d feel the same way about me

We were kids back then

With popsicle stained lips and scrapes on our knees
