1 pointI’m scared to log out. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to sign in again. These past few years have been amazing, and even if I never talked to you or commented on your writing, I read it. And I enjoyed it. I enjoyed having a space where I didn’t have to worry about anything. And the space outside of here can be scary, but it’s out there for all of us. We can do this. We’re strong. I love you all so much. You know more about me than I ever imagined I would tell you. For those who see this and can’t respond, goodbye. For those who can, see you soon. —queenie out (for real, this time)
1 pointI've never quite... belonged anywhere. Even here I was a little bit distant, on the edge of something bigger because I was too shy to talk to you. (I'm sorry) Even so, this place was like home, wild and weird and wonderful. I'm trying to write something final, worthwhile, but all I can think of is that I never cry but sometimes, almost... I know everything comes to an end, I just wasn't prepared. Sometimes I wish I'd been braver, been here longer, said something nice. I guess I wanted to say thanks for having me, it's been fun. I got to write what I wanted, (or needed maybe) learned to love poetry even more than forests or stars. I've said goodbye enough times, but I'm still not sure what to say. I'm not sure if anything will be enough. So. All of you are amazing and I'm glad I found you, Cicada. I'll miss this strange, lovely place. farewell then, Wandering Monster
