a situation i found myself in when i was in my late teens this would change my life and turn me into a trusting loving person

I sat there ripped with grief, my face soddened with tears of sorrow, I wasn't in control of my emotions I was numb with the grief you had burdened me with, I tried to rise from my chair but the colossal weight of the grief kept me firmly rooted.
just a short note you left in an old envelope you found stuffed in a drawer somewhere, goodbye the envelope read, my hands were dithering with the fear embedded within me by your departure, my hands were shaking and wet with the tears of sadness wiped from torchard face, I couldn't focus properly as the pools of tears in my eyes were continuously present, I knew I had to read the note encased in the envelope of doom, I just had to summons the courage from within my sole.
after a couple of hours I had managed to sustain a level of focus, I knew what I had to do, I took a deep breath filling my lungs to capacity, holding my breath I took the note from within the envelope, the note was folded in half and in half again, I couldn't hold my breath any longer, I exhaled It sounded like a gust of wind whipping through a hollow in a tree.
I opened the note slowly dreading the contents within I knew I had to read it, the suspense of your sudden departure was tearing me apart and I needed closure.
The note said, 
I'm sorry 
I felt trapped like a bird in a storm unable to spread my wings, like a caged animal unable to roam freely, you were like a keeper not a lover, 
Good bye.
Well there it was in black and white I was to blame for the misery and grief I was encased within, there is no resolution to this situation, ill just have to wallow in the sespit of my own making.

Yes there is a lot of emotion in my writing I write better when I feel a little down or sad but writing helps me through them, just like anyone else I have an up and down life, just as well if I didn't I would not be putting work on here LOL

Thank-you for your comment
