Please don’t fade away. 
I’m starting to forget your face
and the melodic sound of your voice.
I close my eyes and I can still see you,
but it’s not the same -
there’s something missing.
You’re fading away and I don’t want you to.
I know that I have to let you go,
that some ties are meant to be broken,
that this city keeps on going,
and that these lives keep on living,
but it doesn’t mean that I have to forget
the memory of you.
Please don’t fade away.
The memory of you keeps me breathing.
Dear old friend,
Correction: You were everything but a friend.
You were more, You are less.
We haven’t spoken in a while.
We left everything and moved on, and I don’t know why.
Sometimes I wonder what life would be like if you were ever in it again.
I don’t particularly miss you, or want you back.
I just wonder.
I sometimes question what things might have been like if I knew why we threw it all away. But just as they say, sometimes things are meant to be let go.
So I understand.
I don’t blame you.
I never did.
But I want to know one thing : Do you wonder about how life would have been if you stayed?
—  Sincerely, O.S. 

I want to say I regret bagging for you back, but in some weird way i think sinking that low was good for me. I don’t want to be someone’s second choice. I want someone who is sure about me and only me. obviously i wish I hadn’t came off like such a pathetic mess haha buttttt it is what it is right? I think you’ll always have a special place in my heart, but maybe not my life

20. Forgive whoever hurt you and let them go

It hurts to let go. Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold on to something or someone the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you, because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because it’s so hard to keep it inside…
