Truths

FREE WRITING

I just want you to know,

                        darling,

that I'm leaving.

                        I'll be home soon,
                        as quickly as I can because

you may think I won't be back but

                        you know I love you,
                        you know I want to be with you.

that's the truth.

                       It might be a challenge

spending Christmas alone,
unwrapping presents alone,
singing carols alone,
crying alone,

                        but you face challenges with such strength,
                        strength I only wish I had.

You'll get used to it.
        
                        It won't be long. I love you.

Goodbye.
Read it together.
Then read the right half.
Then read the left half.

    This is so freaking amazing!!!!! I didnt even know, you could do this. The double meaning here is so spectacular, the left is heartbreaking while the the right one gives the reader hope. I love this so much!

    It double meaning. Holy- Is it like a truth underneath a truth? The right is "coming back" and another truth under that is the left not coming back? Or is this father communicating to himself and his child? Left is him, right is his child?
