The way you ditched me...letter unsent 5

I have an acquaintance. For introductions I’ll call her Miss C. I wanted to write one letter to someone too but since she was in a lot of pain, I let her use my blog space to write for Write Tribe letter unsent series to “someone who has caused you a lot of pain.”

Without taking any more space, I will now leave you to read what Miss C has to say.

-----------------


Dear you (you know I am talking to you),

Although I have learnt long ago to not complain, but I am tired of listening to your continuous rant on how I am behind all this and your present condition.

Do you remember your days back in college, when you took me out with you because you wanted to look “Cool”? I myself, back then warned you to not come so close to me. However, you wanted me to be by your side so that you could show off.

When you entered corporate world, you still dated me for your mean reasons. You used me to “network” with your colleagues outside office. You took me with you to parties and dinner and showed me off like I was a prized possession.

Frankly, by your mid age, I was as addicted to you as you were to me. Although, you got married and settled down, you couldn’t leave me. We continued our affair even after objections from your wife and then your children.

Our relationship was on its prime back then. We were seen together all day and night. You kept me in front of you, refusing to let go. You felt me skin several times a day and kissed me every now and then. Be it happiness or tension, you needed me to calm you down.

 Only when you fell ill and entered the hospital, your wife and your kids got their chance to keep me away from you. I know back then you tried to reach me. Of course you knew that I was unable to approach you. Those six months of your time in hospital were most difficult time for us.

When you returned, I thought you will turn back to me, but I didn’t want to impose myself on you, thus I let your family keep me out of your sight. I was happy seeing that you were no longer dependent on me. You had a new resolve. You wanted to live for your family.

What shocked me was when one day you sat there, telling your friends our story and you simply said, “It almost killed me.” Since then you have been saying it every now and then and thanking god that our relationship was over.

In one instance you forgot the warnings that came with me all along. I had warned you ample number of times. In fact I always came with a tag line. Didn’t you ever read in all these years that it read on a corner of my clothes, “Smoking is injurious to health.”?

No longer yours,

Miss C
