Well, bugger. I think that's the most heartfelt thing of yours that I've ever read. I am dumbstruck. Everything worked. Everything. Imagery, pathos; the rhythm was phenomenal. I've never heard you speak out loud but your voice practically thundered through this. Well, except you weren't thundering. Your voice did not thunder so much as it shone from every word. It gave the piece life, immense life. That was incredible. I have literally nothing bad to say about this piece. I don't think I could improve it if I tried. It's a masterwork.

On a more personal note, goddamn everyone feels this way one time or another. The beauty and clarity that you use to broadcast such awkward, aching feelings... No, wrong way to start the sentence. Basically, I feel like I need to be someone I'm not way, too. A lot. Feeling that way a little bit right now, though about something unrelated. Reading this made me feel better. So thank you for that. Your writing turned on a little light somewhere in my soul and that is a great gift. Your words have immense power. I think you will come to realize that more over time. In the meantime, I hope you feel more comfortable inside yourself. The rock star would not be able to write like you do.
