i miss...


i miss my youth. i miss my elementary school friends. i miss watching animaniacs every afternoon. i miss my stuffed animals that kept me company at the foot of my bed every night. i miss innocence. i miss getting rewarded for reading my harry potter books. i miss the lack of responsibility. i miss going to my aunt's every year for thanksgiving. i miss my uncle. i miss the feeling of security. i miss covering the driveway with chalk scribbles. i miss not having to worry about future. i miss not having to think about money issues. i miss eating pizza rolls for lunch almost every day. i miss my old lunch box. i miss getting amazing grades. i miss recess. i miss walking around with my old friends and just talking for what felt like eternity when in actuality it was less than fifteen minutes. i miss when we would walk everywhere instead of relying on the automobile. i miss not knowing how mean man can be. i miss being naive about stuff. i miss how the perfect love story was defined by cinderella. i miss when our only homework was to color. i miss what felt so comfortable. i miss when my whole family still lived at home. i miss you. i miss flying half way across the country every summer. i miss my old white walls that i would secretly doodle on. i miss the innocent imagination i once had. i miss the carefree childhood. i miss reading winnie the pooh and doctor seuss before bed instead of my government textbook. i miss what i thought you and i could be.
