  That you would, that you even could, journey back to those long-forgotten days of being eighteen again!

Of sipping on cokes
fawning over James Dean
reading and not understanding Nabokov
and dreaming of your prince
of true love coming to save you
and your life to begin.

To be a child on the verge of adulthood and not an adult who has faced much sadness and seen little happiness.
