    I don’t understand how you could just leave like that.

    No goodbye, no explanation, nothing, like turning the page and finding the next one blank.

    It’s like reading a really great novel that you’re mesmerized by and can’t put down.
    You have finally gotten to the last chapter where you will find out what it all meant, whether it will turn out victorious or disastrous, whether the hero rises or falls, whether the heart gets mended or broken.

    Still left with so many ‘what if’s’ and then you manage to tear yourself away from it for a brief few minutes to do something else.

    When you return, you find the book gone.

    You look everywhere but can’t seem to find it.

    You are crushed. You will never get to read that last chapter and it’s killing you cause you’ll never know what happened.

    Of course you could go through all the work of searching bookstores and online websites to try and find another copy but this particular book is very rare.

    It took a decade to find this one… It could take even longer to find another.

    Do you spend all your life seaching for that book to finally read the ending?

    Or do you decide that maybe the ending isn’t as important as you thought it was?

      I’m feeling the very same way. I think the ending is very important. Problem is, my love didn’t. She just walked away never letting there be an ending. I just hope she’s happy with the fat drunk she’s with now.

      i have no words to explain how moving your letter is, it is so passionate and conveys such deep meanings to questions everyone wants to know. i loved this story thank you for writing it, it just made my day.

      Worst of all…after a certain amount time its impossible to pick right back up where u left off. You would have to reread it. Sometimes the book is even better and sometimes not. But it has to be reread.

      A.R. – Thank you I am glad that someone read and appreciated what I have written even if it’s not the person I wish would… But I know he would never come on this site and even if I don’t think it would make a difference 🙁

      B. – Thank you. You are right, very rarely can things be picked up where they left off. Things can be forgotten or not the same as you remembered. Sometimes it is better to be left with your imagination on how it could’ve ended instead of the reality of what actually happened, or sometimes it could turn out better than you could have ever imagined. Unfortunatley I don’t think I will ever find out…
