I lost a friend today. Those five words in particular aren’t poignant by any means, I’ve lost count of those I’ve lost over the years, but this isn’t my first rodeo. I did not write this for me though. This has nothing to do with me or how I feel, because one less boy walks this earth today, and it was his choice.
I have been putting my heart on hold for you just because you would never be able to hurt me, and that had helped me get through any emotional turmoil caused by my foreseeable failed relationships. But sadly, all these failed relationships were caused by me — not you.
