Letters to You: I’m Leaving

Darling Heart,

I let you cheat on me. That was my foolishness and my weakness, and really, my failure. And in allowing that, I allowed you to open up this great wound of sorrow in my most deepest place; I let you wound my soul, cleave it in two, never, ever to be whole again.

So you, and all of the yous of my future, I won’t let you in. I can’t. I don’t know how anymore.

And if you get near, if you by some trickery draw close enough to that place I now know I must protect at all cost (because it remains an open wound, a bleeding pocket of puss and distemper), I will leave you.

I will leave you before you leave me.

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
