Letter #75: The day you gave your life to someone else.

Updated: Aug 10

Everything happened so fast…

One day you were calling me all day and night…

& the next day you married her, just like that.


Whenever I’m distracted, I feel freedom…

Whenever I’m by myself, I feel an ache on my chest.


In need of a bigger vocabulary to express what’s going on…

One second I’m strong and okay…

& the next, I can barely move my hands and head.


There’s a clear blue sky, waiting for me to appreciate it…

& all I can think of is nothing… because my thoughts are non-existent…

My energy is flat…

My mood changes by the ticking of the clock…

I’m fighting the biggest inner battle with myself because I will not let this sadness tear me away.


Heartbreaks come in different ways, I know that now.


Your heart can break not only from sadness but also from anger.

It can break not only from anger but from frustration.

It can break from impotence and non-acceptance...


However, seeing you marrying her, this time produces melancholy and a hole in my heart;

& all of that, due to the hopelessness for the murdered plans we once had.


You killed us with that choice…

& I don’t know if I’m grateful or sorry for you.


I could decide to doubt what we had.

But, I’m choosing to believe that you never lied.

Which is why, I wish you the very best from the bottom of my heart.
