i've heard from so many ppl telling me they feel like they're regressing to their high school selves

If I'm in the state of Maryland, I need 10 hours of sleep. Drawn into a girl I once was, I lie on my stomach and ask my mother to scratch my back. Her nails gently trace circles on my skin and I wonder if she is trying to tell me something.

When I trace shapes on someone, I am always trying to tell them something.

The grass in suburbia is thick under my toes as I take the same picture of my dog that I've taken a hundred times before. We play our parts — I coo at her, she looks at me. I smile. I can't help but smile.
