From Our Readers: You Were Mine Once
I have not heard anything from you since the day we've parted. It has been months since the last time we have seen each other.
I can't help but reminisce and look back on the days when we were still together. I miss the things we usually do together—from the long walks every day after school to our movie nights on weekends. You're like my other half and my constant buddy as well. You were always my knight in shining armor. You've always saved me from our classmates who tried to bully me.
I can't thank you enough for all the things you've done to me. Thank you for not just being a best friend but also a brother to me. Thank you for cheering me up when I was so down. Thank you for wanting to dance with me at prom when no one else wanted to.
Thank you for being there when no one else was. Thank you for being you.
It hurts to think that we can never bring back all that we have before because of how things are right now; they're just not the same anymore. So many things have changed since you left without any word. Whatever your reason was, I will never know. You left me hanging and clueless. It was toxic. I was helpless. But I was hopeful that you'll come back someday, that things aren't too late. I know I might sound stupid but this is how I feel.
I found myself still holding on to you. Sometimes, I just wonder why I am still staying when you didn't even tell me to. I feel so lost right now. Maybe what I needed is your reason. I know you had one. I want to know why you didn't take the chances, those that were meant for you alone. I want to know why you let things turn out this way.
Nevertheless, I hope you are doing well and I hope you haven't forgotten me. Lastly, I hope one day you'll come back and never let another chance get wasted again. Please don't let other person take that chance away from you.
You might laugh at me after reading this but just know that this is what I've always wanted to tell you. Even though you've ran away already, I'm still the girl who can't be moved in the place where stars have witnessed how everything between us ended.
