A Letter to my Best Friend


Edited: Feb 27

Trigger warning:


My Jenny Lynn,

I remember when we got borded and passed notes to each other in church, I remember as roommates we left them on the fridge or on our bedroom door. Then as we got older, got married and the miles between us grew we texted, Facebook messaged and posted on each others timeline almost everyday. But This one will be the hardest letter I will ever write.


It has been 1279 days since we last messaged. That last message to you plays on repeat in my head. I told you to get some rest and I will call you tomorrow. I forgot to say I love you, God what a stupid thing to do. How could I forget to tell you that? What’s worse is I don’t have an excuse as to why I didn’t call you or text like I said I would. I wasn’t busy, I was home all day and I didn’t forget. I just didn’t think about it. I took for granted that you would be there whenever I got around to it.


It was 1:07 am when I got the call that you took your own life. The sound that came from me will forever haunt my Husband. He said he could literally hear me heart brake and feel a part of my soul die. You left with no explanation as to why. I have obsessed over searching for that note from you. I just can’t bring myself to believe you didn’t leave one. That you didn’t think of leaving me a message, email or even an anonymous post on the internet somewhere. I haven’t found one yet but some part of me will never give up looking.


My Family and Friends tell me "Things will get better" I have a difficult time believing them, Heck you didn't believe them either. I know they are trying to help, but sometimes their words just aren’t right, so I just don’t talk about it. I don’t mean to not keep your memory alive or seem unaffected by your absence. I just don’t know how to accept other people’s comfort when I don’t feel the comfort. To know that you didn’t have any one to comfort you or that you weren’t comfortable enough to tell me you were hurting, hurt me the most.


I still see things I want to show you, and I still have those moments that I grab my phone to text you when something mundane happens. Not a day goes by that I don't miss you, I understand your choice, I just don't understand why you chose it. I’m trying not to think of the “what-ifs” I want to focus more on the “because-ofs”

*Because of you I had amazing adventures

*Because of you I became me

*Because of you I know what it is to be truly altruistic.

*Because of you I know what unconditional love feels like.

Please, Know your Love has deeply changed me more than any man I have ever met.


I miss you. I miss texting you about every single stupid thing that happens in my life. I miss the way people would ask me where you were when you weren’t with me because it was a known fact that we were a packaged deal. I miss laughing with you (at you) and all of our inside jokes. I miss looking over at you and knowing exactly what you are thinking. I miss the way you used to fill me in on what the Cats did that day. I miss knowing that at the end of the day I had you, that when push came to shove, no matter how bad the situation might be, I knew you would be there. I miss my guiding light, my other half and my platonic soulmate But Most of all I miss my best friend.

I love you always and until now I couldn’t even admit this to myself but I forgive you. Forever and Always,

Your Anjee Ellen

  • We’ve entered a foggy time Where only the insane are truly free Politicians thrive With agendas where their brains should be. Where “dialogue” is shouted curses Wielded like dull-edged swords And our defense against this loud banality Our faces sunken into phones, terminally bored. We no longer slouch towards Bethlehem But think its existence is just fake news. The truth is no longer a solid thing But a clay molded with our views. I’ll not try to do what Didion did, I’ve neither the competence nor the need To walk around in different shoes In glasses smoked with weed. I’ll just erode in peace here dark While the world in every direction implodes to dust. The red of it not iron-based – Eternal quiet the only end to our distrust.
  • Etréstles asks oblation to the unfortunate of the World .. he asks to give his offering House that is not his house, to synchronize your departure to be in the company of Solitude, He does not have his sacred Cemetery before leaving for Nineveh ... He has disappointed himself of the Archpriest of Ayia Lavra for his strong telluric pains in his marble abdomen ... The holy oil that furrowed his forehead, furrowed his soul he has not recognized himself when his own umbilical nap has flourished a wafer of the Messiah who has traveled alongside him by the pavilions of Messolonghi in clarions rubies .. My father Staktos; come, I have not yet received the indulgence of abandoning what is not abandoned, I need to hear your voice from my sixth reincarnation playing on the roads of the oracles that illuminate the world, which is yours and the Messiah Choir on the Magdala heavens . Father I have not yet gone, and so many lives I have lived to see your distant face on grass barley resembling your breaths of late sunny spring celestial sermon sermons. But this time I want to cheer you beyond the imagination of eclectic anemia, with the aching pain descending through my impure heart. Nothing torments me more than to move away from the hells that do not know that I run through the prairies towards you without getting tired, imagining that I will fall into the neglect of your forgetfulness. I quickly lose my Laud from my right arm as a short-handed little fish, to commit the indiscretion of anticipating me to worship you with my dislocated left arm that carries the Harp from Lethe confiscated from Euterpe. Harmony that ignores Dinora in the false forests of Messolonghi in flames. You are my cobble who pierces the cries of my crucified hands, timbers of lymph incense next to the sweetness of your words that grew green in my dreams. Challenge with this interloquy of your incandescent soul, this is how The Last Temptation of Etrestles begins with its bleeding fingers, in the inflexible forgiveness of praising all those who want to dance with the mothers of the Shadows; that Staktos is his father, before reviving him and resuscitating him in his exodus to Nineveh, land hunched over by the Host, tortuous and artificial light shone from the recklessness of him who will make him sleep through the desert of life in farewell fantasies. Winds are felt singing whistles of hydrogen sulphide rocking from the edge of the cliff of the cloud, to fall on the shoulders of the timid death, False Blood, clumsy blood to wash my feet on Virgo and Jupiter in the sand. . Father, in purgatory, make the sounds of the new dawn without any detail or gesture of repentance. Thus Etrestles receives the Eucharistic host offering in his holy mouth and runs down the corridors of the great mysteries of the Nothing of good spirit of all Mantle. To be continue…
  • Thy will be done Dear God shine your light on me rain down my almighty I got no chair to sit nor a place to think safe me from despair and give me air heal my valuable soul and wipe away my tear and no longer live in my fear show my path to love help me fly like a dove help me be who am I to be I am an Earth Angel my almighty and you are my creator greater, better, like a mirror my light, my only saviour Dear God I need to wake up shake up, and never look back I am on a mission waking from hibernation creating, living and loving this is my destination Dear God Help me please grow and forgive others for I now know my real true feathers I am an Earth Angel and we are one Dear God Thy will be done
