I don’t care what anyone thinks or says, because our love was real, no matter how young we were.
He showed me..true happiness. And that I was really worth something. He made me smile so hard it hurt. I know that God brought us together. He was really smart and I was spacey and in my own world. He loved that though. I felt protected by him, and special. He was a vegetarian but said he would cook meals with meat for me. He was sincere and honestly the “coolest guy you’d ever meet.”
He got sent to Juvenile Hall for a month for fighting.
I remember the night before he left. He packed 8 pictures of me and promised me that no matter what might happen over the 30 days, that he would love me no matter what.
He got out and broke my heart. Said ‘I Love You’ were simply words that fell out of his mouth and he didn’t mean it. The next day I moved to New York where I didn’t have internet for a couple months. I thought about him all the time. Obviously. When I finally did get internet, I looked him up and we started talking. He apologized and we became ‘friends.’
I honestly thought he didn’t want me back. I was hurt and needing him but I played along with the ‘best friends’ lie.
A month or so after we started talking, he committed suicide. I was the last person he talked to. I didn’t even know that he was dying while IMing with me. But he was acting weird and I messaged my other friend telling her to get someone over to his house.
I found out the next morning.
Turns out, 2 days after he broke up with me, he wanted me back….but thought I deserved better.
I really loved him.
My friend Josh typed his note to me out.
