And when I say
that I miss summer,
I don’t mean the season itself,
but the feelings I associate with it.

It’s not summer I crave,
it’s freedom.

And when I say
that I miss summer,
I don’t mean the season itself,
but the experiences I associate with it.

The sensation of your head
resting on my belly
as we lay in the grass
and watch the sunset.

It’s not summer I crave,
it’s you.
