Dear You,

Prompt #17: A letter to someone who has hurt you

Dear You,

How do I even begin? Should I recount every word you said? Shall I show you the scars left from many years ago? Do you know how much you hurt me? Do you know how your words struck even the most unyielding cords in my heart that I thought would never be affected?

There is no February 29 this year.

And so the month ends again

Bringing with it all the lives that ended during its reign

I just hope as the month of February says goodbye

The chain of loss and heartbreaks end as well

No more trying to hold back the tears and sadness

As the pleasant kind of love hid itself from me and my friends

And the kind of love that hogged the limelight

Was the kind that forced many of us to weep and eventually let go

Yes, February ends tonight

And another months creeps into the year

As pain falls into dusk, hope dawns on us on the first day of March

Parang ilang araw lang ‘yung lumipas tapos nawala na lahat, nakalimutan na niya lahat ng mga sinabi niya sa’yo. Tapos maguguluhan ka na lang dahil pakiramdam mo ang tanga tanga mo dahil naniwala ka, dahil nahulog ka ulit kahit sinabi mo na sa sarili mong papatayin mo na lahat ng nararamdaman mo para dun sa tao. Kaso nabigo ka, tapos siya masaya pa rin. Nakakainis. Ang daya-daya.
