Just thinking about each letter and writing either the first thought or some important/unique memory associated with anything starting from it. You can do it too 🙂
A. You might rot in hell.
B. Weird memory just made me laugh. You were annoying and someone else noticed too. Even teased me about it.
C. In my first school ever. Probably one of my earliest memories. There’s a corridor type thing. There’s your name. There’s your embarrassment.
D. You and your brother. How old were we? Five? Climbing the gate to the garden after school. My sister and I were afraid we would get caught. You two were so used to it. It was amazing in the end.
E. The phone call. The news of death and not knowing quite well how to be dramatic enough to express that it mattered a lot.
F. Letters. I didn’t know I could do the letters thing with you but it was kinda supportive.
G. A flashback, a horrible cry like in the book. It was a little bit of enormous back then.
H. The walks, the talks. One casual debate when a stranger passed a hilarious comment causing us to stop in our tracks. Your death glare. Then that time a cat popped up beside you out of nowhere. I remember fun and warmth.
I.I felt safest here. More than I do in my own city.
J. It’s always hurtful when someone you’re so close to cannot be happy about your success, and cannot hide it as well. I know it wasn’t your fault but it wasn’t mine.
K. When we were vulnerably honest about some ideas, emotions, and even public issues.
L. Trying not to. It’s hard because somethings we just have no control over. Like can you decide what to or what not to see in your dream?
M. Helps me draw. Sometimes needed to shut out every other voice.
N. Senior ex-friend lol
O. Someone else’s hell perhaps
P. Most things I’m passionate about
Q. Respect. Admiration. Aur afsos.
R. Wonder how moms mostly just know which friendships are unhealthy. You are good but as I grew up, I understood what I got saved from.
S. I spent a good time to end up with a no-line
U. Physics and Chemistry classes, sharing a hands-free and listening to one of our favorite songs that I can’t recall now. We were so close. But we’re all also so temporary.
V. Last year, so typical. This year a joke
W. Thank you for lending me your watch during exam!
X. Where we get stuck in name-place-animal-thing game?
Y. The Kashmiri poem you sang. I shared an Arabic/Persian mix.
Z. The most special meet-up in a city that was neither mine nor yours. From this place right here to several memes, poems, problems, and some promises.
