#05 Happy Anniversary, Parents.

22th November 2011.

It marks the 12th year of my parents' separation.
It marks the 12th year of my misery.
It marks the 12th year of not celebrating raya together.
It marks the 12th year of not having a complete family.

Who knew after so many years, I'd still feel the burn.

#04 Of fairy tales and prince charming

When I was small, I religiously read fairy tales like it was my bible. I still remember the pink colored book that was given by my mama and the smell of the book. It was big for my 4 year old body. I didn't understand what was written in the book but the pictures made me happy. It was like my own sanctuary or oasis.

Back then, I believed that everyone will get their own happy ending. I believed that every happy family should consist of a father, mother and siblings. I believed that love is a beautiful thing. Like I said, it was my own sanctuary. All I could see was the damsel in distress got her prince charming and the unfortunate ends up with a very handsome young prince. The bad guy was so easy to spot and everything is perfect.

But as I was growing up, I realized that not everyone will get their own happy ending. Not all family consist of two parents and siblings. Love is not always beautiful, it causes misery to some of us. The damsel's troubles were caused by the prince charming and the bad guy's identity is always sugarcoated by his charms.

And that's how my innocence was taken away from me. My beliefs. My hopes.

#04 It's all for the best.

I am tired. All. The. Time..

I feel so tired to the point that I just don't want to go out and heck, I didn't do any productive things for the past few weeks. It's been class, assignments, due dates. Everything else is just obscure and honestly, I'm much happier like this.

My feelings have been on a roller coaster ride for the past few days and one important lesson that I have learned is; The less you care, the less you get hurt.

------

Dear ______,

I hope one day, you will realize what a big mistake you made. I will never wish you bad things but I'm sure you've heard about karma, it will somehow knock on your door and give you the treatment that you deserve for treating the people who love you like trash. Yesterday, it could've been much worse from me but I was holding it back for mama. The woman you always hurt.

You see, just because I'm younger than you, it doesn't mean you can disrespect me. It doesn't mean you can be rude to me because whatever happens, I'm your blood.

I forgive you but I will never forget, not this time.

#03 Such fragile broken things.

You can act like I never matter to you,
You can tell others that you don't care about me,
You can act like I'm non-existent in your life,
You can ignore all of my text messages, my instant messages and my upcoming letter.
But deep down, who the fuck are you kidding?

My closure letter is done.

After writing and tossing the handwritten letter in the dustbin, I finally got the closure that I've been wanting for few weeks now. I guess questioning why you've been ignoring me, why did you go missing just won't cut it. I'm finally accepting that you are no longer a part of my life.

Just one question though,

Did I make it that easy to walk in and out of my life?
