I Want to Write An Open Letter

    I'm trying to play it cool,

    and my friend told me to too. I could easily tell you how I feel over facebook msgr just as easily, because we've been that way for the past few months we've been talking. But, I'm afraid. I'm afraid you'll say "it's not a good time". I'm afraid of "well thank you, but I have...
