I want to let go of someone who I won’t ever forget. We met through a friend and became friends immediately. We shared our secrets and most intimate moments. There was love, within romance and friendship. He was the best, he was the worst, but lastly, he was my favorite person. I didn’t want to let go of him while he went back to Berkeley because I thought I would be able to wait. I hoped we could be friends from a distance, in the least. But things dwindled and he seemed to have let go of me before I even realized. I made him a bracelet and put all my love in there hoping I would weave myself into his life wherever he goes. Now I want to let go because holding on isn’t going to make me happy. Loving someone is being able to let go so they can live their lives.
