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
