The Impossible Vastness of Us

Samantha Young

“What is it you’re hiding?” I asked.

“I can’t tell you. Please just trust me.”

Hurt swept through me

but I tamped it down. It wasn’t

my place to demand Finn’s secrets.

My frustration was suddenly

mirrored in his eyes.

“I wish things were different.”

But they weren’t.

I didn’t know if I was angry

at Finn or just angry that nothing

ever seemed to be easy for me.

Everything was always a fight...

You were my very wise guide on this journey.

Thank you, my friend.
