Dear “you were the drug”

13 Jan

Dear You,

I love you. I have always loved you, and I will always love you. But when you started using, you were someone else. You were the drug, the shitty friends you kept, the bad things you did… you were not you. You were not the friend I’d spent hours on the phone with. I’d lost you. And though it’s been 7 years since I last saw you, having you back in my life, even at a distance, has been wonderful. But what you told me today scares me. I’ve lost you once, and I am not ready to do it again. And I know I’m not the only one who feels that way. I need you to be strong. I need you to get well again. And I will do anything I can to help you. Lean on me like we always leaned on each other growing up. I just need you to be OK.
