“A Letter To What Was Once Mine” by Matilda Uchegbu

“Hello there,

it’s nice to hear from you again,

it’s been years, I fell into hate and felt drained, but now it’s all a facade because I can say and I do mean it

It’s nice to hear from you again.

Things changed like the weather, the time, trends and cloths changed but one thing remained the same,

how I feel about you, it’s so nice to hear from you again.

You sound happy, I don’t know how I feel about it, not sure if I’m sad or if I should be,

I almost cried when I heard the sound of your voice

still so smooth and encouraging as ever, not sure

why I feel these emotions,

I thought I hated you, so why is it so nice to hear from you again?

I know it’s been a while but

we are talking like there was never a space

or time never flew by, everyday I await a text

because I know a call would be asking for much, I

never thought it’d be so nice to hear from you again.

Like I said things changed, I’m happy about it,

atleast that’s what I’d like to believe,

you seem so happy and I should be contented right?

But it kind of hurts even though it’s not supposed to,

that I know you stay up late at night ‘cus of her while

I do same ‘cus of you,

I don’t know if it was right to hear from you again.

But I know your heart still beats closely to mine

like it used to,

because I was never so sure about anyone like

I was you,

it’d be a shame if I let you leave

without saying goodbye to me, I guess what I’m saying is it’d be nice to see you again.

But I hope this ‘goodbye’ is different,

it doesn’t sneak up on me and then lasts forever or

maybe another 4 or 5years down and then

I’d get that ‘hey fishbrain’ text, lol, you’d think it’d be

‘bighead’ from you , you’d also think

it wouldn’t be nice to hear from you still,

But it’ll be nice to hear from you, still, it would.

Love Matty,

Always and Forever.”
