Just writing down what bittersweet nostalgia feels like to me.

Milk and Cookies.

Lately your life is a mess.

You miss the days you were in a good place,

You miss the days you were in a good place, warm-hearted people all around you,

You miss the days you were in a good place, warm-hearted people all around you, nothing haunting your mind.

So you gather all your strength and get you a glass of warm milk and some cookies,

So you gather all your strength and get you a glass of warm milk and some cookies, like you used to every Sunday morning when you were a kid.

Suddenly a storm of feelings hits you,

it takes you away, nostalgia overwhelms you.

Then you're dropped in the eye of the hurricane.

You are surrounded by innocent memories, genuine bliss.

Your feet are yet to touch the ground, so you duck the cookie in the glass and wait.

However, you have managed to obtain a remarkable amount of patience, you wait and wait until the time is right

However, you have managed to obtain a remarkable amount of patience, (maybe too much) you wait and wait until the time is right

However, you have managed to obtain a remarkable amount of patience, (maybe too much) you wait and wait until the time is right (but when is the time right?)

and you let the cookie get so soaked up, it couldn't even be collected with your adult-spoon.

and you let the cookie get so soaked up, it couldn't even be collected with your (now) adult-spoon.

Disappointed you drink the milk with all the little crumbs inside and return to reality.

Disappointed you drink the milk (that is no longer warm) with all the little crumbs inside and return to reality.

The phantom of you as a kid is watching your back as you're leaving and is shouting for you to stay,

The phantom of you as a kid is watching your back as you're leaving and is shouting for you to stay, but you refuse to listen.
