Dear _____,

That day you broke up with me in the rain, I thought I would never be okay, and I was right. You may be over this, but I'm not, and I am scared to admit it. I remember our stupid inside jokes, and just laying in my basement and watching movies. I was scared to let you in but your beautiful smile and your trusting heart let me fall for you. It felt so good to be in your arms, I finally felt safe. I saw you fight for me, so why did you give up? I remember kissing you on New Years and falling so deeply in love with you.

But something happened, and 6 months later I'm still not sure why such a beautiful relationship would be put to an end. I get that I was clingy, but I felt you pulling away, I had to. I never thought I would ever have a broken heart that hurts so long after the stab. Now? I have a boyfriend. If anyone asks? I'm over you but I'm not and I don't know how to tell you. You saved me. Thank you for helping me become the person I am today, I just wish things could've played out differently.

Forever yours,
