// Dear Ex Lover,
You know today when I see myself in the mirror, I'm not the same me who fell for you. I'm a different person now. Maybe if we meet again, you'll see a stranger in me again. But I know that's not going to happen. I know you're far away, trying to work out your life, like me.
You know sometimes I look into this empty void where you used to meet me and think what else could we have together. I figure out nothing. We could have nothing to grow into. Maybe that's how life is; it puts some people in your life only to take them away, in order to see if you'll grow through it or just wither away. And yes, I made it through. I really made it through.
You know I still find you in those memories that you left behind. One can do nothing but hold on to them in order to never forget the ones whom they belong to. And I'll never forget you. Yes, I'll never forget you. Maybe that's just the way I'm. I hold on to everything that made me feel a bit different. But if you wonder if I'm mad at you, the answer will be no. I forgave you the day I knew how I wanted to see myself. But one thing that I want to say to you but I could never say, is thank you. Thank you for making me realize what true love is, for teaching me how to see what's hidden behind the skin, for letting me go because maybe with you, I'd never have become what I'm now. Thank you for making me feel and see differently in a completely different time of my life. Thank you.
You know sometimes I wonder if you're still with the one for whom you left me and it hurts. It hurts quite a lot. But I still hope that you're happy, safe and loved the way you deserve. I'm with someone too, who gave me more than anything I'd ever ask for, who still helps me sort out my life. You already know how messed up I usually am (I hope you do remember). And I'm happy. I really am. I hope you're too.
From the one who could never really be yours,
