I can't believe
it's been a month.
I'm not in denial
anymore
but I don't miss you
any less.

I dreamed about you
again last night.
I thought you were gone
from my dreams,
but not last night,
the night before the
anniversary of our separation.
(I know, I'm over-dramatic-
we weren't dating.
No, we were best friends,
we were sisters,
and that means
so much more to me.)

I dreamed that you
came back to me,
that you forgave me.
I felt no obligation to you
to keep you safe and
send you away.
To be honest,
I'm not sure I could,
even while awake.
I know that if you return
I should.
Should and could are
very different.
If you come back,
I will be elated.
Far too elated to
look to your well-being,
and that scares me.
I tell myself I can do well-
for you, for me and for God-
but I'm not perfect yet,
and I don't think I'll make it
without a few failures.

So this September 22, 2003,
exactly a month since you left,
I sit, idly, and write
of the greatest sister
I ever had, and
the one person who
meant more to me than
life itself.

You know who I am. Obviously. Look at the screen name. I only have one bloody name. T.T

*huggle you forever*

Damn your hair is short, girl. You scared the daylights out of me.

Gods, what a cryptic message, I do know that there's something I meant to say. I think I realized it... yesterday. Or was it the day before?

I realized that I was a complete and utter... pick a word. I heard, through friends of friends, that you were really, really angry at me. I'm sure you've called me plenty of words. I'm sure I deserved each and every one of them.

Girl... I realized, yesterday or the day before, that I really, truly hoped that you were happy. Which surprised me. But I want you to know that. I really, truly want you to be happy. And I'm going to shut the hell up now.

But I'll look for a reply here, if you'll give me one. Here. Don't call me. (I don't think you would, but just in case.)

Please forgive me for being self-centered and stupid. I have been all along, and I'm sure I seem so right now. But... I had the flu yesterday, and being sick always changes me drastically. Thankfully I don't get sick that often. I wish I made sense, but I'm still a little muddled.

*huggle you forever*

-- Me

PS. It was strange fate that lead me to this poem... but I never believe in mere fate when I'm sick. Like I said, being sick always changes me.

Hey you... I was thinking of emailing you. It's sort of odd that I stumbled across this reply, actually. Fate led me to it... Honestly, that's the only thing I can come up with. I hope you're still looking here for me to see this.

Would it be unfair of me to say that I'm confused and I'd like to know what's going on? I mean, if you don't know, then we can sort it out, I guess, whatever that means... but if you do, let me know. *smile*

I miss you. I don't know if I can get away with that... but its true.

God... I hope you find this.
