I know that this is one of your "older" pieces but i bookmarked it and never commented, so despite all the comments this piece already has here I go lol:
The way you wrote this switching from past to present tense was great and very well done. I love the simplistic nature of the images here and how you used cliche' ideas in a personalized way without making them feel quite so cliche'. The tone here is lovely and perfectly penned. There is a wonderful story here and the last two lines were especially well done.
Boyfriend in the war kinda vibe. i did this. shows what the women go through. this was by far one of my favorites i have read on this site in a long time. this was stunning. i kinda hope this is a true story haha.
