💌 for a letter my muse would write to yours.
meme: a letter lucas would write to
grace while she’s in a psychiatric ward
It’s the twelfth of July, but you won’t receive this until
tomorrow afternoonthe 13th when you’re finished painting in art therapy. I’ll be in Seattle then, following up on a string of murders. Nothing for you to worry about, you’ll see me Friday. I’m writing this at the bureau and it’s past midnight, but I’m not alone. Crime doesn’t sleep, so neither do we. I think it’s selfish the way we hide from personal demons the same way criminals do, except we avoid homes and they avoid us. What I’m getting at is regret. I should have been there for you when clozapine got you sick, or when you overdosed on Lord knows what. You needed help but nobody did. I’m sorry I can’twon’t get you out of there and I know it sucks. Just do what the doctors say, work hard, and we’ll be home again in no time. I need you to. I can’t sleep, the bed’s too big without you.
P.S. Wiggly misses you, he hasn’t moved from the bottom of the dirt tank. Consider this a get well soon from your bug friends.
