There is a Tumblr Meme that is going around – 30 letters in 30 days. I’m not so good at the posting every day, so I’m going to post them as the mood strikes me, with modifications that I like to call “artistic license”.
Day 1 — Your Best Friend
I miss you. I miss what we used to have as friends. I know things really changed when I started dating Irish, and things got pretty ugly just before I moved away. I was hoping that with some time and distance, we’d get back to normal. Once I got past the hurt feelings, and you got past the jealousy.
We still talk, just not all that often, and when we do, it’s mostly about you. When I bring up my life here you change the subject. I can take a hint, so I just don’t talk about it. The one time you’ve wanted to talk about it, I didn’t. It was when I called and said I was thinking about leaving. I’m still here and you haven’t brought it up since.
Mostly it’s nice to know you’re still there for me when and if I need you. I appreciate that more than you will know. We might not be where we were before, but I’m always here if you need me.
