Unsent Letter #4

For a week, I didn’t even want to say anything. Your last message was clear, your silence even clearer. And I had my resolve. If you can disappear without a word, then far be it from me to break the silence. I said my part, and anything more would be redundant and pathetic. But a… Continue reading Unsent Letter #4

Unsent Letter #3

Do you know what sucks? Feeling like I’ve never been closer to someone than I am to you – knowing it will never be less than an ocean apart. Wanting to tell you how much I hurt – holding back because I don’t want to burden you. Giving all I have ever been and all… Continue reading Unsent Letter #3

Unsent Letter

I would like to contact you, but I know I can’t. I have been here before, and I always gave in first. Breaking the silence, begging for attention and fighting to keep it going. Not this time. You told me you want some time, so time you shall get. I will not tell you about… Continue reading Unsent Letter
