You are Track 5. Everything about you, us, who I was with you…Track 5.
The album that Track 5 is on is what inspired this month’s theme. All of my ex’s, in one blog, in one album. And so with a single sound track I cranked out post after post, purging all the wonderful and wretched that was left inside of me. But, as I travel through the land of lost loves and lusts, I would trip over Track 5. I would be in my writing groove, plugging along at a productive pace, and then the cords would start and I would stop. Mid-sentence. Mid-word. It always came back to you. It will always come back to you.
I always knew you would be my last letter, my final statement. I essentially wrote this post over a month, 3 minutes and 49 seconds at a time. I had all the power at my fingertips to remove Track 5 from my playlist, but I didn’t. Track 5 was the reality I needed to face. And so I let it play, I let it marinate under my skin.
And what did I come up with in the end? What stroke of amazement did I craft to leave behind us as girlfriends but place in front of us as friends?
Listen to Track 5, it is all there.
