    Dear Ken,

    I know you’ll never read this so I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t address this directly to you.

    You promised to never hurt me. But you have. You’ve hurt me more than anyone else ever has. Did I deserve a text message break up? Did you think it wouldn’t hurt when you had her as your background instead? Did 8 months mean nothing to you?

    You promised you’d always protect me. But you are the one who has physically hurt me the most. Your stupid car crash, yeah, I have to live with the physical consequences of it. And you’re sick of me bringing it up? Well I’m sick of not being able to see out of one eye.

    You promised we’d work things out and you’d try. Guess what? You gave up. Not me. I’m still trying as hopeless as it is. You didn’t even give things a chance to work out. You didn’t even think about it. You just did it and haven’t thought about it since.

    You promised you’d always be mine. You even gave me a promise ring. Well, where is that now? At the bottom of the ocean and maybe it’s better that way because clearly it didn’t matter to you anyway.

    You promised you’d love me. Always. You always said that. Always promised that. So I gave you everything I had. I trusted you with my body and my heart. And you broke both. When you said you loved me…Clearly you lied. Just like you lied about the yard work when you were at the beach. Now I wonder if you ever loved me at all.

    So what do we do now?

    I want you to tell me. Because despite all your broken promises, I want you to make one more. I want you to promise me that you want me and always will. I want you to take it all back.

    I love you. I promise you that.
