I am very aware that I did not follow normal grammatical rules (case in point: capital letters and complete sentences). When you just need to get something off your chest, those things are generally not at the top of your "Most Important Things To Get Down" list, as many people may know, I'm sure. In my case, that's heartbreak for ya ): Writiing it down this way (despite my usual grammar nazi ways) just...makes it more real, more relatable, to me.
