It’s been a while, huh? I guess it can be pretty easy to lose track of time. How have you been? I hope you’ve been well.
I’m sorry I left when I did, I just needed to get out of that town, I hope you can understand. Didn’t you used to talk about that yourself, about just getting up and leaving one day? Well I couldn’t wait for you anymore. I’m sorry…
I will miss it, and you. Remember that cafe on the corner of Fourth and Oak, with the great scones? We used to go there for afternoon tea on Sundays. Unless it was raining, then you’d pick up some scones from there and come to mine, and we’d read and have our tea by the fire. Thank you for that.
I think about those times a lot, because it rains a lot here. I don’t mind though, it’s pretty calming, even if it is a little sad.
You’d like it here. It’s not Madison, all cute and friendly, but London does have its charms. I love to walk down the Thames and look at all of the bridges and old buildings, observing the tourists. I guess I’m still a tourist though. It’s not quite home yet. There’s so many people here too, it never stops moving. I needed a place that could keep me distracted.
I wish you could see me here. I’m finally starting to do better. I got a job as a writer, just like we talked about.
I’m so, so sorry John. Life just isn’t fair sometimes. I don’t know why I got these things and you never did, and I’m so angry about all of it, but…I’m tired of being angry. I just can’t do it anymore.
I would’ve died for you, but you beat me to it, so now I have to learn to live for myself.
I’ll try to visit when I can, bring flowers, but I won’t be able to for a while.
Forever & Always,
Author’s Notes: I am forever attracted to sad topics. Whoops, my hand slipped. I swear I tried writing a cute happy little poem today but it just felt…wrong. So instead I wrote about a woman who has finally move dot London a year after her boyfriend died. Should I have not explained that? Oh well I explained it anyway. Friday’s are definitely becoming a creative writing day on this blog, so give me any prompts if you want. I hope you enjoy it. x.

This was really well done. I could picture it easily in my mind. Sometimes, I like when things are explained. It helps boost my confidence that I’ve come to the correct conclusion about what I’ve read. I really enjoyed this. I’m hosting a Fiction Relay and you should check it out. There is only one chapter right now, but by Tuesday we should have the second relayer’s chapter.
There’s a deep lonely, longing-ness to this piece that resonates with me. Very nice!
