Your brother's in the backyard digging in the dirt. Your Mama was in the kitchen in an old t-shirt. Your Daddy's diesel was coming up the street and 'Ready to Run' in your headphones with your nose in a Cosmo magazine. Pretty in pink on all 10 toes. Your mama says all that junk in that Cosmo magazine you're too young to read. Little did everyone know you were growing your wings. Your whole life is on lock down. Doing time behind your bedroom door. You guess it's alright for right now, but outside your window. There's so much more room for running and space to discover, a whole wide world to see. You're dreaming about the girl you're gonna be. Stuck in Rice County, growing your wings.
You were one of those girls that never quite fit in. Holes in your shoes and freckles on your skin. When the school doors opened wide. You always wanted to turn back around and run home and hide. You were used to being stuck in the back of the line. You were the one that kept your head down most of the time. You always had secret dreams about your best friend Liam. Then you would wake up thinking you wouldn't have a chance to be with him. He has a girlfriend named Danielle and he 'loves' her.
You're a wildflower. Just waiting on a sunny day, waiting on the winds of change to blow. A red hot spark that's looking for a little flame. Trying to find the perfect place to grow. Pretty soon your luck is going to change, you just don't know it yet. ;) You're just the secret that nobody knows. You then began to have a flashback of when you and Liam went on a trip to Tupelo, Mississippi.
*Flashback. Your POV*
He picked a wildflower off the side of the road. He put it in my hair. I had two bare feet on the dashboard. My hands waving through the summer air. Looking at him, looking at me. With the wind strapped to our backs. We were flying as high as a bird in the sky. It didn't get much better than that. Love struck was right on the money. Our heartbeats beating to the radio. Kisses to others cheeks were as sweet as the honey.
We were counting the white lines mile by mile our worries were slipping away. He turned on a back road for a little slow down. We followed the river as far as it could go. We both were smiling in the July sun. I heard him say, "I'm falling in love."
I then said to, "You ain't the only one," and then we sang all the way down to Tupelo.
*End Of Flashback*
It was one of the best memories I ever experienced with him, but also one of the worse. Those happy moments I cherished the most with him. it was one of the worst because that's when our talks and our memories became shorter because of his clingy girlfriend, Danielle (he's not dating her now, but she never was like that). She won't let him even look at me. I haven't told anyone, but it hurts me. I act like I don't care, but deep down I swear it hurts.
If he only knew how much I think about him. Have you ever loved someone so much that it made you cry? Well, that's me. A hopeless romantic dreaming about a boy that will never be mine. I'm trying so hard not to cry because every tear is just a reminder that I don't know how to let him go... I've just kept quiet about my feelings because it will only hurt me that people will know abiut them and they hear me, but they don't understand. I sighed as I set my Cosmo magazine down on my windowsill looking outside. My tears began to fall down my face. Why am I afraid to lose him even though he's not mine?
What am I even talking about? I've already lost him. I got up knowing my toes were dry. I laid in my bed covering up with my blanket my mama made me and laid there looking out the window as I cried myself to sleep...
Hi I'm Keira Chanel and this is my story...
