June has been quite eventful thus far: I saw The 1975 with my friend for the second time on the first. Then that friend flew out to Illinois which is where she is moving for her first full-time job. My girlfriend volunteered to pick me up from the train station two towns away from my hometown after the concert, we got pulled over by cops for a non-functioning taillight, and then…because it was so late in the evening and the drive back to her house was far, she crashed at my house. This in itself isn’t significant…she practically lives with me when I’m in my apartment at school. What made it significant to me though was that we were in my family’s house…and I lied to them.
she grabs me by my waist and kisses me
i want her so bad i feel dizzy
but i’m sorry, my phone keeps going off
i must answer it, i am scared to get caught
her kisses down my neck are distracting
as i dig in my purse, my phone i’m extracting
i must answer it
i must break away from this kiss
before the phone call i miss….
i push her away and answer my phone
my mom is on the other end, wondering when i’m coming home
“the mall has closed two hours ago
“why are you still out, are you alone?”
with a heavy sigh
“no, i am with a friend
“my coworker, jess
“remember i mentioned her…”
she replies, “sure i guess”
she tells me to come home soon
“it’s getting late, you have school tomorrow, you should be asleep in your room”
i hang up, and adjust my clothes
i tell jess that i have to go home
and then she turns up the music and goes
i sit in the passenger seat
thinking about all the lies i’ve hissed through my teeth
i feel lost again, i want to be found

I don’t know why I never published this…I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
She picked me up five minutes to six. She drives a little silver car…a Dodge I think.
Upon opening the passenger side door, the stench of air freshener, cigarettes, and perfume wafted up my nose. I breathed the smell of her in and bid her ‘hello’.
She was wearing a long-sleeved, blue and grey striped shirt and dark blue jeans. Her long hair was pulled back in a ponytail, as always. She looked really good.
Then she pulled out of my driveway and headed toward our First Date destination: The Olive Garden. My family thought that I was going to the mall.
