i missed you ... i had wondered where you had gone. to see new writing from you is great - i must admit that reading what you used to write, the style does seem over the top, but it was always beautiful in your own way and i hope you're experimenting and growing in your writing and in yourself for your own sake and not because of the cruel comments left in ignorance. i always saw your talent through the format, and it shines through so clearly now that the extra bolding, etc. has been stripped away. not that the format isn't great sometimes - occasionally, it can even be necessary. but your poetry just seems ... cleaner without it, and makes your powerful words even more beautiful. it should be obvious that i've changed, and that my wounds have been healed. i haven't cut in seven months, and i haven't been even slightly suicidal in about one month, ever since i cried out to the Lord Jesus and He saved me from the darkness of sin, depression and from myself. i should be going back to school in a couple months if it's the Lord's will, but i'm doing my best to trust in Him and let Him lead and control the life i have surrendered into His loving hands. i no longer have religious issues - i don't love her anymore, and never will again, especially since i've resolved the issue of sexuality (i'm straight) - i no longer have depression or severe anxiety - and my life is filled with the love and peace of Christ. i don't know if you're religious or not, and i don't want to offend you. if you're not, please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions or want to talk about it, or about anything else - i consider you a good, faithful friend who's been there as i was dying and in hell, and i care about you, even though i don't truly know you, only through your writing mostly, which is even more amazing than before. i don't want to start 'preaching' or make you feel like i'm trying to 'convert' you, but now that i know the peace and love of God in His endless mercy and grace, power and glory, (praise be to Him forever -) i want you to know what i feel so that your wounds may be healed completely, if the scars are still there.
anyway, although i've changed, i still love writing, and you're still leaving reviews that leave me so grateful for all the support i have on here. i truly appreciate everything you said and all the ways you've been there for me through everything. you've even accepted the changes in my writing as a faithful reviewer and friend, and for that i thank you. you will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers, not because i'm trying to 'save' you but because you're my friend and i hope you're doing well, or at least better than before. and the poem - absolutely gorgeous. amazingly powerful - the format, the length of the stanzas, the eloquence, the imagery, the writing style - all flawless. there's nothing to criticize, nothing to say except - a beautiful piece of writing. you're becoming incredible, dear.
God bless you, and have a peaceful, blessed and joyous Christmas, and a wonderful new year.
in the peace and love of Christ,
