"Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer. Do you know you're unlike any other? You'll always be my thunder, and I said, Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors. I don't wanna ever love another" -Boys Like Girls
I caught his glance as the sun was setting on that mid-summer night. They started the bonfire and you came and sat right next to me and handed me a Coors. I thought you were cocky but somehow you still seemed to make me smile.
You convinced me to stay longer that night. We went to the parking lot and you placed your hand in mine. You held the nape of my neck and pulled me in for a soft kiss.
I looked into your eyes and the light of the moon reflected back. In that moment I knew you were going to be the highlight of my summer.
And it was a summer romance like no other. It was two months of passion and recklessness. We didn't care what anyone had to say or how long it would last. To you and I we didn't care what tomorrow had in store. What meant most was right now.
He somehow made me face all my fears while he took me on every summer adventure for those couple months. It was crazy to put all my time and my love into someone who I knew wasn't going to make it in the fall.
We both had different lives but even if it was just for that summer our paths crossed for a reason.
We would get drunk and walk around. We drove till the sun set and we didn't know where we were anymore. We danced in the car. We took a road trip to the beach and fell asleep in the car. We fell in love between the long kisses and the endless laughter.
They say summer romances never make it to the fall. They say once September comes we have to face the reality again. Maybe this is the last night we have. Maybe we have to say goodbye.
My heart will break but one thing I know for sure is you took my summer and made it the best yet. You changed me to let go and fall in love.
You helped me face my fears. You made me believe in love again. You taught me how someone should love me. Maybe it's not the right time but I sincerely hope we meet again.
