The Downfall of Sam Porter

(This letter is a response to

Dear Logan,

I fear you may not receive this letter in time,
I’ve had to stray away from the technology I grew up coveting,
Estrange myself from what I used to believe
And leave behind the things I’ve formerly called mine.

You see,
Ever since I’ve gone into hiding and heard of your health
I’ve lost much more than those simple pleasures,
I’ve also lost myself.

And now I fear that they’ll trace my efforts to you,
But I had to risk it all to say
That I love you too
And I hope you’ll pull through.

And as for me,
Don’t envy my beautiful past,
I’m now a wanted criminal.
Let me be the first to tell you
That good things weren’t built to last.

I shot him point blank at a pit stop;
It was late into the night.
He didn’t see it coming,
But boy, it was a sight.

I glanced over at his face,
Logan, you should have seen,
Heaven in his eyes,
Before I drove off through the side streets.

I have digressed a little from my original message,
But you were always the optimistic one.
Won’t say I told you so,
But the boy you once loved is gone.
And I just thought that you should know.


Please don’t write me back,

Sam Porter
