Diving Into Seventeen

I’m seventeen and listening to YouTube
When I didn’t really like any dude
Just studying for my exams
Steady heartbeat but sweaty palms
And it was a year of tragedy
But it also gifted my life to me
As I stand up to the sea
And do you think he meant me
When he spoke that syllable on the phone
A moment together and then alone
As we try to catch stars as their speeding past
You know meteor showers aren’t meant to last
