I wrote to him for a year with sporadic responses. I left him voicemail, but he never called me back.
A month ago, he stopped reading any of my messages.
Now, his Facebook page has messages that read he was lost too soon.
My mom laughed because she did not believe my pen pal and imaginary boyfriend was dead. I wanted to smack her.
But his life was all too real.
Now, I have no answers.
