Joshua D. Lee
Anchorage, Alaska USA



Donald: Hello?
Me: Hey! How's it's going, what's up?
Donald: Not Much
Me: I haven't heard from you at all since you broke up with me.
Donald: Yeah...
Me: I thought you said we were going to be friends
Donald: I know
Me: You aren't following through, but I just...
Donald: Yeah?
Me: I just wanted to say that I'm sorry I got all emo on your ass that night, I really do want you to be happy. But if you're going to tell me you want to be friends, and just plain ignore me afterwards, that hurts my feelings.
Donald: Well...
Me: I hate being the one who always texts you and you never respond or call back. It hurts.
Donald: I'm sorry.
Me: I don't want it to be this way. I'm sorry too. I was falling in love with you, and now in my heart I just feel anger because of you.
Donald: What can I do?
Me: Get over yourself? I dunno... You do need to initiate change in your life, but you can't cut out those who love you. If you keep pushing people away, all your bridges will burn.
Donald: ...
Me: I miss you. I really do, but I'm going to move on if you keep ignoring me, because I'm done with that crap...
Donald: I don't know what to say.
Me: I just want you to know that I'm hurting because of you. I want to be your boyfriend and be that great couple we were becoming before you got scared. I'm sick of all the gays in this world and the games they play. I thought you were different. Don't be like them.
Donald: I don't know if I'm ready yet.
Me: That's fine. Just know that if you keep brushing me off, that's going to be it. Ok? Think about it... I'm going to go now.
Donald: Ok...Goodbye.
Me: Goodbye, Donnie.
