Letters to no one #4

This is for you who decided that friendship wasn't worth crap. This is for you who was family and decided to betray our trust. This is for you who never had my back even though I always had yours. This is for you who took and took and never gave anything in return. This letter is for you telling you that you broke my heart, you said you wouldn't and you did. Said you'd always be there and disappeared when I need the support. Always took my strength and gave me none in return. Drained me of all my passion and love. Drained me of any hope I had. This is for you to tell you, I forgive you. I forgive you not for you but for myself. Because even though I forgave, I won't forget. But I won't let it bring me down. So its time to say goodbye and I hope that one day you'll understand how much you hurt those around you.
This is my letter to no one, I hope you see it one day.

Why do I love reading?/ My fascination for books.

This prompt was given by my bestfriend and I hope this does it justice.
It might be easier to ask why the world was round or why lucifer fell. But in all my days on this earth this question has no answer. It has many. Too many to comprehend but I'll try to put it in words. Reading gives us a way to travel when we're stuck where we are. It's like a magical portal to different worlds. It allows you to live thousands of lives and go on millions of adventures with a simple flick of a page. But the most valuable thing it gives is a place to belong. Within books you aren't judged, you fall in love with the characters based on their thoughts and not looks. You live their lives as your own, you feel as they do and experience things that you'd never experience. It's the safe haven that's always there when you want to run away from this cruel world. It's what holds you together when they try to tear you apart. And maybe they ridicule you for it but you've gained a plethora of information from the friends that are bound and inked,  that you are the wisest amongst them all. So really, books aren't really just paper and ink, they're different homes you go to when you need the light.
