    A Letter To My Old Self

    Dear me, I think i knew you from some other time. You were that innocent girl locked up in a bubble. A true believer that nothing was wrong with this world. Never knew how bad things can get. Full of dreams and with a bubbly acttitude towards life. You were that girl that got...

    A Letter To Me

    Dear me, You have done a wonderful job! You fed yourself drugs and got yourself raped. Great! The nightmares have haunted you ever since. How do you feel like having PTSD and Bipolar Disorder? Wonderful, right? Because you ******* deserve the pain. What an IDIOT!! Oh, you thought...

    To J

    I didn't know you that well. You lived across the hall from me, ever since I was a kid. Sometimes I came home from school only to find I had forgotten my keys on my desk and so I shyly rang your doorbell and asked to use your phone to call my mother and to wait 'til she got back...

    Dear Mom,

    Every action you've been doing lately is truly pushing me away. Two years ago when I was going through my divorce, and I didn't call you, and when I finally did you yelled at me for "not calling." You know, you have a phone too. You're unhappy with my actions. You're...

    Dear Mom,

    I always thought you and I had a great relationship. I felt as if I could tell you anything. Where did that go wrong, when did that change? Did you feel as if when I grew up that there was no longer room for you? Did you feel intrusive upon my life so you stopped trying...
