An old friend came by today after arguements with a girl that he fell in love with. As I talked to him I really thought for once he changed his ways and heaven knows I’ve missed him. We sat and talked about the year gone by since we last met as friends in the outskirts of this town. He seemed tired and I’m sure I did too but I’m just glad we’re finally okay. Still, I’m sorry it took me so long to come around. A car park replaced the old cinema where I saw my first film as a child. They’ll probably burn that down too six months from now and if they do I wonder if they’ll catch them this time because I’ve had friends who’d do that and I loved them back then but now I’m just working on moving forward. I hear they cut down the trees where we use to sleep on the nights when I was troubled for the worst. Allegedly to stop people like me from lighting fires but I only did it to keep me warm. But now that we’ve moved on I guess we don’t need that, we’ve all got cars or a space in someones bed. I know that deep down inside this is the closest place I have to home so the words I have on this cave you call a chest is what I’d call hope. That one I’ll build one for myself, I’m not quite there yet but I’m getting there, I’ll get there somehow. Even if it takes forever.

Did we ever talk about why you left? I hear it’s nice there in summer so I hope your choices chose the right ones.
