i go out in my back yard to either lay out or have a bonfire and i look over into my neighbors lawn and see the huge ass play set with the twisty tube slides and the swing set connected and just multiple levels to this thing. this play set was awesome and is where i spent most of my summer days growing up. then i remember the people i used to spend them with.
i used to spend it with my neighbors jacob, erik, and adam. we were the first kids to move in on our block when the whole sub division was being developed. we all grew up together, spent almost every waking hour together, and got to learn everything about each other over a span of five years.
more kids began coming into the neighborhood and we all became this huge un biological family, we’d spend the summer house hopping and coming up with all new games.
as we got older though we all began getting involved in sports or drama, you name it, we all started to have our own thing going on and didn’t really have time for each other anymore.
then one summer jacob, erik, and adam announced that they were moving out to the east coast.
now they’re gone and i’ve only visited them once since then. it’s days like this that just make me really miss them
“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened…or you can just leave the pieces on the ground and move the fuck on.”—Tupac Shakur (via thegreatestgatsbythereeverwas)
