Note: this is a writing exercise that I found in my diary.
Instructions: (from Natalie Goldberg. I forgot if it was from “Wild Mind” or “Writing Down the Bones”) Write for ten minutes. Start with the phrase, “If I were to do something crazy.”
If I were to do something really crazy, I would write you a letter. I would make you understand what I felt and why I cried. I would make you realize that you were wrong and I was right.
I don’t want to write you a letter
Because I want to move past you,
To release you back into the black hole of memories,
And to end.
I don’t want to write you a letter because talking to you means that you exist, and you haven’t existed in my world for a very long time.
