Somewhere by the Sea

A few years ago, right before my ex proposed to his new wife, a high school student he left me for at 30, he asked me why we didn’t just run away together years before when we’d had the chance. I reminded him that I tried. He was the one that didn’t show up. 

Dear Secretary Clinton,
I am sorry. I’m sorry we weren’t enough to stand up for you and what you’ve shown us we can do. I’m sorry we failed you. I’m even sorrier we’ve failed ourselves. However, this morning I am also hopeful for the embers I see burning in these women that you’ve empowered with your career and campaign.
