Ole Miss, were the almost boyfriend. you were the night I almost went out. You were an almost. You and I were so close to being together and that’s unfair. My love for you still burns and my heart aches knowing I’ll never be able to walk through the campus as a student. You were an almost. I went to orientation. We were so close. It’s not you, it’s me. The town of Oxford, Mississippi became my love and my home. I was supposed to drink drinks by the name of Taylor Swift. I was supposed to fall in love with you more and more each day but that didn’t happen.We drifted apart for reasons I can only blame myself for. It’s not you, it’s me. Ole Miss, you were supposed to be the place I figured everything out. You were my saving grace until everything changed. You were the place I felt at home and comfortable. You
were are my love. I still love you and my heart aches knowing we won’t be able to get any closer than me cheering on the Rebels from the tv screen. The friends I made were an almost life long friendship. I connected with your friends and you brought me closer to them. You were supposed to be the place I would never want to leave. I wasn’t supposed to want to come back north for weekends or breaks. The times we did spend together, I never wanted to leave.
I will always love you, my friend.
