Letter to the Lover I Never Had

Go forth, without me.

I know we shared feelings for each other, but I don't want to hold you back.

Forget about me: let your mind, body, and soul desire another.

These words are not spewing from my mouth because I simply don't care: I love you, so let me go. There is another lover for you who will give you more than I ever can.

Your soulmate is somewhere in the world waiting for you; find her.

I promise to love her as I love you.

Don't write back asking if we can be friends, and put all this behind us as if it never happened.

'Tis simple: either I am or your lover, or am not.

I'm leaving to pursue my heart's desires; please pursue yours.

Live well,
