My Unsent Letter
6 days ago · · Writing Prompts
I wouldn’t know where to begin, I just know how it’ll end... with my heart broken. The moment I met you, I felt something. You give me butterflies - I can hardly look you in those eyes. I try to tell myself you feel the same...the smiles and waves you give me when you see me far away.. when you stand close to me, I assume it’s because you feel the same.. but even if you did it wouldn’t matter... because you have a girlfriend. You’ve been together since March 2019, I have seen photos of you and her... with your arm wrapped around her, looking so happy. I would never do anything to ruin that for you. I could never do anything to ruin what you have because it wouldn’t be right. So instead, I watch from a distance.. hoping and wishing that you’ll just pick me. You don’t know how I feel about you, and I can’t tell you. I try not to think about you but every thought I have is about you, every daydream is about you and me, having dates and getting married and having the life I wish we could have together... but we can’t. It sounds so childish - I feel like a teenager again, like out of nowhere I’m going to start writing Mrs ******* all over my notebook.I just needed to write this letter, to tell you how I feel. To tell you I wish you thought I was enough, that I was worth the chance. I just want you to feel the same - why can’t I have this? Is it so hard to love me? I wish you would leave your girlfriend because you realised she didn’t make you happy like I could.
I know this won’t happen, because I know you are happy with her. You have never mentioned her to me, but I see through those pictures. There is a man that won’t drop what he had to have a shot with someone like me.
I just hope by writing this letter, this can help me move on... even though part of me is desperate to stay - just so I can hear you laugh and look at me one more time.
