I am not Mike Brown.

solipsistic-interjection:

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat.

When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves.

I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while…

What I know:
Shadow. You are a shadow. You think you are the darkness, but you are wrong. Shadows are born of light.

What I know:
Your laughter is a song and I will use it to play myself to sleep.

What I know:
I will never tire of running my fingers through your hair or down the planes of your chest and I think I stopped breathing the first time I looked your way.

What I know:
You are fuzzy around the edges and I am waiting for the clarity.

What I know:
The only thing that matters.

What I know:
I love you.

A part of me

Usually when I get the urge to write, it’s because I get this overwhelming feeling and it washes over me like a wave in the ocean. And I can’t get back up until I get it out of me.

And so this weekend has been long. and also too fast. and also of lot of running around and messy rooms and dusty shelves and empty apartments and crammed cars and holding back tears.

to be honest, i’ve done pretty well at fighting them back. I haven’t let it hit me yet. Part of me has been too exhausted. Most of me has just been busy doing other things, like working or class or being around people.

But that’s not the point.

I am going to miss Boone so much. way more than i originally thought. You always hear, “places become a part of you.” Well that’s true - to be honest, I do not miss charlotte all that much. I only miss it because my parents are there and my house. But charlotte never defined me, never really shaped me - i like to think even though i grew up in charlotte, i was pretty much raised in NY. NY defines me - every time I go, i have this feeling and it sounds silly, but I know that’s where I belong. Not that i ever felt out of place in charlotte - it was just never my home.

but boone. so much of boone is me. and so much of me is boone. Maybe I’m getting nostalgic because this summer went way faster than I thought it would, and moving out of an apartment that i lived in for 2 years with my best friends was actually a lot harder than i thought it would be.

i already miss them so much. and 47 heaven. It’s funny because that place was such a staple, every day for 2 years, it was always there. kelsey, emily and jess were all always there. and now it’s not and some new people will live there and it’s going to be so weird. The new tenants will never know who we are, and neither will the tenants after those. all we have left of 47 heaven is this strange echo - memories of memories.

Just driving around the past couple of days has made me realize that my time in boone is coming to end. slowly, painfully, and a little cold. Maybe this weird cool weather isn’t helping. But before I know it, it will be November and I’ll have two weeks left and it’s going to hurt.

I am so happy i came to App. Boone was the best place for me and i will hold it in my heart forever. 

one of my favorite song lyrics ever is from a matchbox 20 song, “there’s a little bit of something me in everything in you.” and I like to think that can apply to towns in cities, too.

so boone, thank you for everything. You are the best. I am going to make the most of this last semester, and live the hell out of this town. 

If you’re gone - maybe it’s time to go home
There’s an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you’re gone - baby you need to come home
Cuz there’s a little bit of something me
In everything in you

I am

Not ready for this life. It hasn’t hit me yet but I know it’s coming and it’s going to be horrible and I am just not ready to not live with Kelsey, Emily and Jess anymore.
