I didn’t know it was going to be this hard; walking into that debilitated building without you, on my own for the first time. Independent is how I was supposed to feel, prancing the hallways as a proud 8th grader. But desolate is what I got when passing the freshly painted locker of yours. No longer was there a fragment of your belonging, and no longer was there resemblance of the yellow heart I painted in the corner.

The author's comments:
My boyfriend and I broke up for alot of reasons. One being he was older, going to high school without me. Well turns out he is moving away anyway. This is what I wrote to make us both realize we were such good friends still after 9 months.
