I move to college exactly one week from today. And I’m kind of just going around and hugging everything in sight, right now, and telling everybody how much I’m going to miss them (I’d like to point out that I’m moving like an hour from home–it really should not be that big of a deal).
I’m also doing a ton of laundry and attempting to figure out how to fit all of my stuff into a dorm room. Fun times.
In honor of the move, this week’s Wordy Wednesday is a poem I wrote yesterday about packing my clothes. I guarantee you that there’s more to it than that description merits.
Sit in dark, clutch t-shirt
Hold it in, hold it to you
Cannot give in, cannot fall
Fold shirt, smooth wrinkles
Place on bed, in the Discard pile
Growing, beside the smaller
Leaving, leaving now
So soon to say goodbye,
Cannot hold it in, cannot hold on to
this goodbye, it’s gone too soon
And now it’s a memory and it hasn’t
even ended yet, but it’s fading
Fading, fading, fading to Dark
And I will miss you,
Will you miss me?
I cannot, I cannot lose you
Not now, after I’ve lost all the other memor—
Pick up t-shirt and move it to
I cannot lose you,
Not quite yet.
Mind helping me out and voting for what next week’s Wordy Wednesday should be?
