Letter To My Love

Dear library,

How are you? I hope this finds you well. It’s been a while since we last talked. What’s new? I heard that you added new books to your shelves and brought in new pieces of furniture.

I know you are wondering why I decided to write to you out of the blues considering how I left. I understand that you might not have forgiven me for leaving you with no goodbye. Truth is, at the moment of my departure, I was not in my right state of mind. I was in love (or at least I thought I was) with your cousin Fun.

What can I say? Fun swept me off my feet and left me smitten beyond measure. She persuaded me to follow her by ridiculing my lifestyle, claiming it was dead boring; and to some extent, she was right.  Slowly but surely, I got sucked into Fun’s world of chasing vanity. I was thrilled by her spontaneity, there was never a dull moment with her.

If I were not hanging out with Fun then I was in the company of her two close friends Laziness and Procrastination. Laziness was a cool guy, he bought me a new blanket which kept me in bed and away from class.

Procrastination, on the other hand ensured that I put off doing what brought me school until the eleventh hour. “Always save the best for last”, was his motto. The consequence of listening to him was that I did not hand in my assignments in time or I did not hand them in at all.

I have already broken off my relationship with Fun and her comrades. I want nothing at all to do with Laziness and Procrastination, as for Fun, we will remain good friends but never again will I make her my number one priority.

All I ask for now, is for you to give me another chance. I was a fool for taking you for granted and thinking that I can make it without you. I miss those nights that I used to come over to your place and you used to serve me a hot plate of knowledge, I know you do too.

So please, let’s give us another try.

Yours loving,

Varsity student.
