Today was new. Today I found out that I love you. Though the moment scared me and I knew I shouldn’t say it so soon because you might leave me. I will wait for you, patiently, quietly. You have taught me a lot about when I need to speak and when I can just keep that inside. You have taught me how to be understanding. A skill I thought I had mastered but then it came to you and you had so much more to understand. So many more twists and turns and complexities. So much more to learn, and I love to learn from you. You have taught me that I am kinder than even I think. You have taught me that it is possible to be calm. You have taught me that it is possible to love someone who will treat you right and that I will not always be a victim of Stockholm Syndrome. Even if we don’t last this time was not wasted because you were my tour guide towards the truth about life. That life’s not out to get me and that someone will be there through the peace and the panic. You are a great teacher and I am lucky to be one of your disciples. I find myself constantly scribbling down notes to be a better student and trying to ace all of the tests and have the best performance. Because I don’t want to fail you. You would forgive me I know, but you only deserve my best. And this is my best for you.
