The Best Two Weeks of My Life

It began as a day at camp

A place a million miles from home

Durham, North Carolina

Our smiles were meek

Our smiles searched for a friend

And so it began

The best two weeks of my life


We wrote stories

From poetry to playwriting to critical writing

We analyzed the craft

We fell in love with words

We began friendships

We stayed up all night talking

We laughed at the other camps

Wondering why they needed mandatory fun time

We never needed that

Fun time was never ending

The best two weeks of my life


Tears fell like raindrops as the weeks came to an end

Without each other

We didn’t know how our hearts would mend

For we truly had found soul mates within each other

The love of creative writing was our common thread

But as I said goodbye

I tried not to cry

I said, “See you later”

For our friendships were not over

And I could never end

The best two weeks of my life
