“Even after everything, how we ended, I truly do hope and wish you to be happy. Please take care of yourself, and that part of me that you took with you, that will forever be yours. I still linger in memories and could be’s, the fantasies go on in my mind, they create a new world where I hear myself say such things to you that I adore. For instance, I get to a point where I tell you that no matter what I wanna hear what’s on your mind, day or night, no matter the time. If it’s four am and you’ve awaken from some crazy dream and can’t quite explain it but need to tell it, I wanna be the one to hear it. Or why your morning drive to work pissed you off so much you just can’t think, or why your mom seems to be acting like such a bitch, but most of all I wanna pass all the small talk and get to your depths, to get to the heart of where you exist. I want to touch the place no one truly ever gets. You’ve called it your darkness, but I don’t see it that way, because I too have put things away out of the light, put away so that they seem hid behind. I wanted to know your childhood memories, good, the bad, the suffering, but most of all, I wanted to know if you still had it in you, that kid who saw magic, who didn’t give up on believing. Because when I looked at you the kid in me saw the magic once again, it was you who had me believing. And if I could do for you what you did for me, what would that be? Nothing more than two souls saving each other by connecting. That’s why, I remain in a solitary state, and there I will remain, I guess it’s to say, even though it’s over, I still love you unconditionally.
