Jumping on the springy black surface and inhaling 

The scent of rubber and grass led to 

Bad jokes and messy makeout sessions 

More sunscreen and serotonin and 


I’m falling for you 

I wish summer always felt like this 

Dogs barking, kids playing, taking naps in the rain 

And snuggling my head in the 

Crook of your neck during a scary movie 

You smell like the sun, deodorant, and cheap cologne 

Ghost in the graveyard with friends and dancing in the street 

Another high school crush that won’t last, but I don’t care 

‘Cause I’m drawing in the scent of chlorine 

And wishing I was in your backyard, jumping on your trampoline
