Dear Future Friend
Today I woke up with mascara all down my face, covered in mosquito bites, shelled peanuts sitting in the bottom of my bag.
My favourite red dress splayed like a flower in full bloom across the floorboards beside my bed. My head feels heavy and my heart heavier still.
The mascara is there I guess from when I cried and you held me close, running your fingers through my hair and kissing me “better”. The mosquito bites are everywhere because we sat in the cold before I cried. The peanuts are there because we ate some and dropped some whilst we fumbled around in the basket for another.
