34 days


Until I’m back

34 days until I can drive my beat up old Linda
And run in to Walmart and see 5 people I know
And Go to Island Naturals
For some spicy tofu salad

I can wake up in my bed to the sound of pouring rain
but know that if I drive 30 minutes
I can be on a sunny beach
With my toes curled in the course black sand

34 days until I can see my mom and sister
and brother and dad
and Thomas

34 days until I can jump into his arms
and just let him hold me
because that’s where I feel safe

And we can talk to each other in silly voices
that no one else understands
except maybe my sister
because she’s cool like that

34 days until we can wake up slow
And I’ll make some homemade waffles
whole wheat and vegan
And my dad can make fun of me
Even though he secretly thinks they’re delicious

34 days until I can see my best friend
And we can sit and say nothing
Because nothing’s changed
And it never will

She can give Thomas and I weird looks
Because we’ve all known each other since 3rd grade
But she wants us to get married
And she’ll be the maid of honor at our wedding

I can see my silky terrier
the other one’s in heaven
It will be sad when I walk in and only one dog comes running out
His big bottom wagging because he doesn’t have a tail
So i’ll just have to give him love for two dogs

And in 34 days I can finally breath
because I’ll be home
