You made it clear a couple of weeks ago that you had been reading my blog. I apologize for not finding the time to write this week. I’m sorry if I have left you with no memories to relive through my writing. I look forward to them too, sometimes.
I’m leaving the country for a week and I can’t stop thinking about how much I would be missing you right now if we were still “us.” Yet I have become quite a crafts woman as of late, filling the holes in my heart. Such was the consequence of letting you go.
I’m writing you today because I’m lonely; also, because I am angry at you for being a coward. I’m writing you because I want you to listen to “You Could Be Happy” by Snow Patrol and think of me. I want you to listen to a million songs and think of me.
I want you to always know that there is strength in pain and I had to find that in order to leave you. I want you to know that I am on a journey to find the next biggest disappointment of my life, which I hope is out there solely because I don’t want your name to be forever attached to that title. But so far, you win.
There were once so many things I wished for you to be. My partner was one of them, but that dream has been disturbed.
Nothing better than a hug from your rock on your last day. It’s the end of a monumental, 5 year chapter. inthelifeofkait

"You don’t know how to be touched. You don’t know how to be loved. You are lonely and yet you push away anybody who tries to get close. You are a ship going under because you cannot stop pouring water onto your hull. And I am the bucket that will never be big enough to hold all of the drowning in you."

Sorry for my drunk handwriting but I found this in my pocket from last night.
