dear you.

been tagged by heather.
have to write a letter beginning with "dear you"
and only using pronouns.
and then must tag others.

dear you.
i know you dont think of me very often. i cant say i mind it, though. its just how you are; what makes you you. i dont think of you very much either, but i watch you a lot. im not too sure if you want to hear this, but i think you need to. so listen up. or read on, if you want to get technical. you always kinda liked to be literal...
okay, here goes. i understand what your life is like. i know how it is. i know how difficult it is to get through things. i know you, and how you feel. when you flash that big, bright smile at everyone around you, and laugh at everything like only can do, even though you honestly want to break down, i see that. you can cover it up on your face, but your eyes tell a different story. even when you try. when you look so brave, but inside you shake, i see that too. and when you stand strong, and courageous and daring, even though everything inside of you is trembling, im right there, watching it all. or when you tirelessly listen to other peoples worries and dilemmas, and give them heartfelt advice, and share their pain, empathize with them...... even though youre drowning in your own problems; i dont miss that either. and when someone is hurting and they come to you, you hug them. you tell them everything will be okay, this is not the end of anything, life goes on, and it will get better. and all the while, your own heart hurts like nothing else. and you think no one sees that. well i see it, and im sure a few others do as well. when i see you like that, i just want to hug you and tell you that itll be okay. the storms will always pass. but i cant. and it breaks my heart a little every time.
sweetheart, you cant hide your feelings forever. and you cant always protect yourself all by yourself, even though it seems best. please let someone in. let them hug you and tell you everything will be okay. do it for me, do it for yourself. and please please be ok. dont let life bring you down, okay? thanks.
all my love, SweetPea.

ps. you might wonder how i know so much about you.
well you see, youre me. and im you.

oh, i dont know who to tag.

This needs to be read by every lonely girl and boy who thinks that noone notices.
