PPP: A Letter

The muse at Pictures, Poetry and Prose was, to say the least, cathartic. There were some pretty powerful pieces.

Our suggested prompt:

Dear ____, I wanted to write you this letter to explain.
(Write this letter to yourself from someone you wish would write to you.)

My submission:

* * *

Dear G,

I am not asking for forgiveness; what was done is unforgiveable. A bond of unconditional trust was broken, never to be mended. I realize that my betrayal rises above all others. I, alone, have shaped your personality. I have destroyed your trust ... your trust in others and, worse, in self.

I cannot change this, for it was ordained that we should meet, you and I, and teach each other this difficult lesson. I know you have learned this moral well, for I have watched you grow in strength of spirit. And I am proud. You have fiercely chosen to deny the destruction of your life. Instead, you have conquered all challengers and are stronger for it. You are a warrior. A survivor.

When we meet again, we will recognize and know each other. You will understand and you will be healed. Until then, know that the Guardians watch over you and protect you always.

Crazy Mo...
This is a beautiful piece and I have the distinct feeling that this is from the heart and a very personal experience. Thanks for sharing it.

Dan ... Sadly, it is. But it was very cleansing to write. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. Perhaps my life is meant to be my muse.

I'm so proud of you, beyond words proud sis.
I'd take that pain away from you in a heartbeat but I always knew I wouldn't have to. Big hugs Saturday...
