Beware the Siren Call

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.

You won whatever you wanted to win. We’re not friends, and you’re slowly trying to pick off any other mutual friends of ours. This isn’t a war Alex. No one cares anymore, least of all me. I’m sad for what we lost, but I can’t blame myself any more when I tried so many times to fix it. Maybe I was too late but at least I tried. You’ll learn someday that burning bridges too easily will leave you alone and bitter. 

I wasn’t lying when I said I missed you, and Lindsay and Katherine; and I am glad you’re happy. I am too and it’s wonderful.

So maybe now you can drop this hatred you have for me, so the mutual friends we do have can stop feeling so awkward around us. Maybe try saying hi to me, or God forbid John, and stop housing all this bitterness, because the only person it’s souring is you.

I hope you’re doing well, and I hope your spring break is a blast.
