“I feel like each of my limbs is bound to a different horse.”
Most likely to be everything.
Toppling idols and college anxiety.
Winter break never felt so good.
The eternal cycle of waiting for a text back.
Awakening, as in not falling asleep.
Love for the internet, and excitement for all October’s parties.
Can’t stop thinking about what’s next.
This is my cue.
