• You Do Carry My Heart

    Dear Carrier,

    A quote from E.E. Cummings, “You Carry My Heart”

    “i carry your heart with me
    (i carry it in my heart)
    i am never without it”

    This is true. You do carry my heart. But you also control my emotions, my actions, and my hopes.

    Leaving me on hold in life while you figure yours out.

    I want to keep my heart, and have control in my life, but you still have me wrapped around your finger.

    And I can’t seem to let go of you.

    So you can keep holding on, just please be kind.

      This letter makes me sob. It’s so poignant with so few words. Surely, you must carry your carrier’s heart, as well.

      Do you really, though, J?
      It’s not always as nice as it may seem.
      No one wants to be a heartbreaker (or a heart carrier) when they already have enough baggage wearing them down.

      I know this could have been you.
      I’m sorry if it was. That was our line, wasn’t it.

      Just know I loved you back.

      This is beautiful.

      I hope your carrier finds this, and tells you how they truly feel.

      Tell him/her how you feel!

      it seems like it is hurting you, so tell them soon, or you may loose your chance.
