  • Some days
    the world weighs heavy
    and you just need
    to try to think of all the happiest things you possibly can.

    Like turtles wearing monocles.
    Sunbathing with a constant ocean breeze.
    Dancing to hip hop music with eyes closed.
    That perfect audio edit.
    That perfectly made bed.
    Tree forts, pillow forts, pillow fights.
    Girl talk, iced coffee.
    Holding hands.
    A piece of snail mail.
    A long drive.
    Chubby baby thighs.
    The person that holds the door open for you.
    The post-run buzz.
    Fresh flowers.
    Ice Cream.
