Dear Friend of Mine

Dearest friend of mine,

You have always been the truest of true. After all this time, I have found the perfect person for you. After all the late night talks of who your ideal mate should be, of what they should have, and of all the things you would absolutely need, the person made themselves known to me. They were dropped into my life right out of the blue and so many times I thought of you. Having known you for so long and knowing my own back story, I honestly think you deserve the gifts this person could bring but there is this one little thing. As fate would have it, this person was brought into my world. This person is called to me and I delight in their company. While I think of you all the time, I think that, for now, this person was sent to be mine. I have not had such good influences in my life. All I have known is greed, pain, and strife. This person is different than anything I have seen. The way that they are is often difficult for me to believe. I don't understand why they would waste their goodness on me. Still I long to be by their side at least for a time. I know that one day I will have to let this person go and when it happens I would like to wrap them in a bow and deliver them into your life. Should you two connect the world would be right. In there lies the risk. Without a connection, it would be a big miss. Then I would have given up something rare on the off chance that you can captivate their stare. To lose them for that, I am not prepared. As far as connections go, we are already there so I can't just toss it aside on the off chance that you would do better there. What I am experiencing right now is one of a kind and tho you are a great friend of mine, I am afraid my friend that this isn't your time but if it all falls apart, I will keep you in mind.

      Everyone wants to be understood more than they want to understand others. Likewise, everyone wants to be truly loved as they are but are so willing to change others. We are funny like that.

      Thanks. He states that understanding is good but he is clearly unfit to understand my point of view.

      It seems that the solution is in the question. I don't agree with most the views out there. I don't understand why people think the way they do or why they hold on to the things the shouldn't. I am a creature of the flow. Understanding isn't a requirement for acceptance. If he won't talk unless your realities match then follow the flow. Don't force your realities to match, just let him stop talking. At least until he learns that understanding and agreeing are not requirements to accepting.

      I need advice. I'm a pacifist and I have a friend who told me to look up the lyrics to a Beatles song called "Revolution". So I did. And it was about pacifism. And everything I agree with. He was trying to use that song to "snap" me back into reality. He won't talk unless my realities match his and he wants me to follow Fairness Doctrine yet every time I straw-man his position, he gets angry. Should I just ditch this friend altogether?

      Don't remember my high school teachers but you are right, more males compared to early learning.

      In elementary and junior high school no doubt. When you get to high school and college, that's generally where the male teachers are. I have no idea why.

      More male teachers are needed... just my opinion.

      LOL. Not all men are English teachers. Although the more recent English instructors I have had have all been dudes.

      Well Frank, me and the idea of a benevolent being or something greater than myself and this place, we go way back but I am not exactly qualified for the religious thing. I don't follow rules enough I guess.

      This piece was actually inspired by a unique compliment I once received. Like all my pieces, fiction inspired by a touch of reality. Love when you visit me Frank... that is not fiction. :)

      Moms.. is your new friend a religious figure.. sounds like you're joining the realms of Christ.. well, not you but the character in your letter.. as always I feel a connection to your writing as a non-fictional piece and yet it's fictional writing at its best... you go girl!!!!
