I've never realized how lonely I've been until the moment I began writing this letter. For the last 14 years, my life has been an uncertainty. Day to day I was just existing devoid of all emotions. But today, I let them go and write freely because I don't wish to remain alone anymore. I do not simply wish to exist, but to be alive with you.

I'm reaching out to you between these lines...
