Every Summer Has A Story

by Chelsea Donahue

Summer is the most volatile time of the year.

We know it can not last forever,

yet when it leaves it puts a small tear in our hearts that can never quite be healed.

We run through the sand and get caught in the waves,

blurring the lines between reality and fantasy.

Carefree,

we challenge our hearts and ignore our heads.

And then one day,

we wake up to frost covered grass,

and chase memories into September.
