Dear __________,

Ever hear someone say put it in writing, write it all down, but don't mail it.. or nowadays, don't email it, skype it, text it, blah blah.. well I hear it all the time. Kinda makes me wonder what is so wrong with my life that I'm always told to put it in writing..

I used to journal, but I felt nothing from it, no sense of accomplishment, no sense of fullfilment, nothing to be exact.  I think that's why I blog. I'm not quite sure who reads this, but I do know someone does. It feels better to put it out into the universe, to know someone is reading these words rather than it sitting in a little notebook in my nightstand, being read by no one but me.  Ever have hopes that maybe the right person will read it?  You know what I mean the person it is meant for?  I do.  I often think about ways,  or try to conjure up ways to get it to them, you know like that oops text you send, was it really an oops??" Oh sorry, that wasn't for you, but hey how are ya?"     Sometimes I think the only real mistakes are the ones you make on tests, or the ones where you step in that hole while jogging and 20 other people see it, I mean no one really wants that to be seen. 

I've written many of those letters, the ones you never send.  I usually wind up crumpling them up and tossing them in the garbage.  Sometimes I'll find one months, even years later, and I can laugh at it, usually I wind up saying "d***" and then tossing it in the garbage. 

My latest letter that I'd like to write,  is still unwritten. Yes another Dear John, Tom, Matt, Lou whoever letter.  It's too new to write. I'm not sure what I'd write. I'm not sure I wouldn't send it, those are the ones you just don't write, that's how I know it's too soon. But then I wonder so what, so what if you ever mailed it.  That's my big question.. why can't you?   You'll look stupid? Like a fool? You'll let him know he hurt you?  So?   I mean, shouldn't he know how you feel?  Would it do anything, well probably not.. but this isn't an I want you back letter, that's a different blog.  This would be a screw you letter, grow up, liar, lead me on, make up your mind kinda letter. Not worth your time? Maybe not, but if you feel that strongly maybe you should mail it, or skype it, or text it..

I'm a big believer in chances, many of them.. I don't really care how stupid I look, I know 9 out of 10 times it will get me nowhere, but what if that 1 time it did.  Life is short. People should know how we feel about them, this doesn't mean they are right for you, or you for them, but what is so wrong about letting people know how you feel, whether it is good or bad.
I think those Dear John letters should be sent ( i mean if you're planning on killing them or a family member, or you have a serious illness that may cause you to do things punishable by jail time, DON"T SEND IT, and check yourself into a hospital, now!).  I of course have never sent one.  I am sending it out to the universe though.  Iam hoping that maybe someday he'll google my name and this blog will show up, and he'll click on it..
and just incase he does...

I miss you. And I saw the last episode.. I knew he'd die.
