It's the tenth day that I've been locked up here, and I'm still yet to have talked to someone. A rat visited my cell today, he just sat there,
judging me with his big yellow eyes. I envy that rat, he can come and go from this cell as he pleases. Maybe you will meet this rat some day, or at
least one of his brethren, free to roam the cell blocks as they choose, passing judgement upon those of us whom society has deemed 'unmutual'.
I fed the rat some of my bread today, he ran off with it and I heard squeaking noises coming from the wall. I think the rat is cheating on me. The rat
is happy because he has others to socialise with. I want to be friends with the rat but he goes out and talks to other rats behind my back. If he can
have friends to talk to, so can I. Will you be my friend?
I've been here almost two months now, and I've been so very lonely. Thinking about you, and how you have the world at your fingertips, has given me
hope. I know that I will die soon, because another one died today, the african man that came in on the same day as myself. When they brought me in I
was so confused, I didn't see why I should have been locked up. What goes on in my bedroom is my business, and shouldn't affect anyone else, so why
did they lock me up in here if I wasn't hurting anybody? Oh well, at least I have the thought of you to keep me company.
I'm finding it hard to write now, the lesions on my arm have started to burst and bleed, it hurts, alot. That doesn't bother me though, because I
know that you will be stronger, and that you will not have to suffer my fate, because I love you, and that will give you the strength to endure this
They've stopped bringing me my food, I suppose they reckon I'm a lost cause. I don't care, because I know that when I'm gone, my love for you will
still remain. As long as you stay strong, I know that I will have made a difference in this world.
Goodbye my friend whom I have never met, and will never get to see or touch, or smell, or hold close to me.
I love you, keep that with you, always.
