Dear Me...

Dear Me, it’s been a long time since we spoke,you know, heart to heart. I miss you a bunch, I mean it so much. Such strangers we have become, where did time go, how peculiar an encounter would be between our oh so distant souls.

Dear Me, when did we part? I can’t seem to pin the moment our paths grew apart. What I can tell you is I’m in a distant place. Days float by so fast, a cruel reminder of my life’s new set pace. The a.c drips in this unwelcoming studio, where my existence now is set, shunned away alone sitting here with my pets. Dreams and happy moments, where have they gone? Flown into the past like an old hit song. Seemingly to feathers of a bird plucked away, I’ve been left a bare unprotected creature that speaks, eats, and sleeps but doesn’t it fly away. What is a bird without it’s feather? What story is there to be told? A bird that doesn’t fly, what purpose does it hold?

Dear me, enough about now, tell about you, where have you gone, are you still bright and strong? Do you dream of grand things and still know no wrong? Did you that get that big job, work to the top, travel the world and party a lot?

Dear Me, How are our friends? It’s been while since they’ve come. I’m sure you all meet and dance nights away to latest new beats. Young and carefree we all used to be.

Dear Me, how different life would have been, had MS not come between you and me. We could have done great things, of that I’m sure, now you’re a distant memory one that is so pure. I wish you the best, to stay how you are, naive to trouble of life and all of its strife. Keep smiling and living for that life can short, not all ships make it to back to their port.

Now it’s time for me to lay and rest, ravaged from a day of my new life’s tests. Promise that you’ll keep dancing through your blissful happy nights, while I lay down and continue battle to my plight.

Michela,your dissertation was poetic elegance and really hit home for me. From the bustling business life I led to where SPMS has now taken hold, you have managed to beautifully clarify that our lives have significantly changed. And our plights are eerily similar.

We do the best we can. Good luck to you.
