you’re my favorite notification
you're my favorite notification.
i can't explain the way my heart skips a beat every time my phone buzzes or the excitement that rushes through me when my laptop gives me the plink of a discord notification.
if it's not you, the anticipation is met by immediate disappointment before the comforting knowledge that you'll be back online again. i would sit my life away next to my phone, counting the seconds between your texts if life's demands wouldn't pull me away.
i'll hang on to every word and emoji that i can get even as the the space between the time stamps of our messages gets bigger than the distance between us. i would let myself be consumed in that silence all just to hear another little plink again at 4 a.m..
