To the YV community, this is my response to the Warm-Up for English class today. We are studying Shakespeare’s Othello and exploring the theme of appearance versus reality.

Dear Abrahan,

I just found out you like me and all but i’m still in love with my ex. Look I like you, you really seem like a cool person and I was really hoping we could get somewhere. But I can’t help but say I can’t at the moment. My ex and I have been through so much and we still speak, I don’t want to put you in this situation. I would rather let you go, so you can find someone worthy of your time. I need to get my life together before I bring someone else in my life. I’m sorry, I care for you I really do but I just can’t no more. I really hope you find someone worth your time, I care for you. I will always be here if you need me don’t ever hesitate. Maybe we can get together down the road, but for now we do just need to stay as friends.
