I shared this with my followers on facebook. I really like it. It's really sad. I had to read it twice to really have it sink in. It's a bit depressing but I feel a lot of people could relate to it. It's also very unique as I've never read something like this before. I work in cell phone industry and I've even had people say, you can feel free to delete the messages in my inbox, just not the draft ones and this really makes me wonder if they kind of do this too. I guess I've done it so I highly doubt I'm the only one.
Thanks for sharing :)

Definitely pulls on the emotional core. True to life idea; but don't be afraid to step up to the plate. c: Sometimes they may be just as eager to hear from you as you may wish to them.

Keep up the wonderful work and many, many congratulations on the well deserved DD my friend.

Very true, but reconnecting is a hard thing to do, especially when you feel you haven't accomplished much of anything since you last saw them. When I'm more comfortable, I'll get more confident, and then who knows?

It took me a few times to read it to understand it simply because I don't text in this format, but it hit me when I did. That feeling of losing someone so close to you that you wanted to get in contact with for so long, it's devastating. Amazing job, congrats on the DD :D

All that time, the person never sent the texts, just kept them, almost like a journal. Then they got a new phone, not all the contacts transferred, and when they went to finally send a text, they found that they had lost the contact to the one person they wanted to talk to. They basically lost their only chance to get in touch again.

the narrator switched phones, some of the contacts didn't transfer, and when the narrator tried to save the message, the desired contact was no longer there.

I don't text anymore, I don't really like the texting thing. However, another commenter said it gave him/her a bad feeling in the pit of their stomache and I had the same thing happen to me. I have never really had poety affect me like that before. My hat is off to you. :clap:

Nah, sometimes we love the people who hurt us the worst.
Doesn't make it a Twilight moment.

Now if you're being all "two hunks are TOTALLY into me, what do I do!?" then you seriously need to be slapped--just to be save before it's too late.

As I read this, I found myself getting a worse and worse feeling in the pit of my stomach...like a sinking feeling of...something. I don't know. The important thing is that it was because of this piece. You made me feel something.

I also cried XD Again, not sure why. The formatting is hard for me to understand (I've never texted anyone in my life, so I'm assuming that's why) and the overall intention of this piece is unknown to me (an old friend? Someone who died? That kind of thing) but the feeling still stands.

In short, I loved this.

It's indeed a powerful piece for me, and I'm stunned that it has held that power for other people, even those who can't explain why.
The overall intention was for it to be ambiguous, even though the subject is very personal and very specific for me. I wrote this thinking of one person and wanting desperately to connect with that person, but sometime specifics way down a piece, and I think that's what they would do here (plus, I swear I'd freak out if said person read this).

Overall, I'm glad you loved it :]
