Kait Mauro – Seasons

Seasons Winter Curl into yourself, avoid going outside because you hate the cold. Spend your mornings in thrift stores hunting for old paintings and model ships to nest into your new apartment. Run away to North Carolina to see the boy you’ve decided you love. Run away to Pittsburgh, then New York City over New […]

Anyway It reminded me of the time I was at a high school dance and the pretty young woman I was secretly in love with was standing near the dance floor and I had every opportunity to walk up to her and ask her for a dance but told myself it wasn’t the right time […]
