One Last Letter

I could do as the song says “I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter and make believe it came from you”. Even though it would be wrong, I realize I would know which words to pick in order to believe it was true. All this because now, there’s a blank in my life, that belongs to the place where you used to be. I wish that at least, there was something really wrong so we could talk about it, but there’s nothing to discuss. I think about how we started changing emails and how easy it was to chat about everything and nothing at all. Together we ruled the world. Together we could do anything. Perhaps we couldn’t but it was nice to believe it was possible even if it was only for a while. You helped me becoming who I am today. I like to think I helped you too. We grew up together for a few years and the memory of our talks is still very present in my heart. I guess it is difficult for us to remain present in each other’s lives but still, I guess I deserved something, like some sort of explanation, because things have changed. Is this a selfish need? To be given an explanation why am I just not talked to anymore? I realize that life got far more interesting for you to no longer have the need to chat with me. You don’t reach out. If one day you do remember to come around and check how I’m doing and I no longer reply I hope you know that I loved every moment I shared with you. All our memories will be saved and praised as good moments in my life. And also, do know that I will always love you from the bottom of my heart, but perhaps it is time for me to move on as well. I want to leave you with a quote of my favorite movie. I’m sure you’ll know which one it is: “The odd thing about this form of communication is that you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings. So thank you.”

With Love,
Ana.

  1. Very nice. I like the traced progression through the relationship. I’m sorry though if this is your actual experience. I hope your life has many better moments ahead. Great movie choice.

  2. Wow! the emotion was so connective, beautifully written 🙂 Quoting from the same movie, “People are always telling you that change is a good thing, but all they are really saying is that something you didn’t want to happen at all, has happened.” We just need to move on and as you said cherish the memories which remain 🙂
