After nearly five years, it draws to a close. It's been too long. We can't keep playing this game.

It seems to me the glory days of Team SMG are over. It's not your fault, though. Never has been.

It's mine.

I suppose it began when your router died. When things came cracking down. Everything fell apart around you. You couldn't get ahold of us, so we couldn't help you. You had to turn to those that could.

Perhaps that was when we started growing up. We could no longer hold hands and fight our inner demons. We had to fight alone, but we tried to remain together. We thought… Not in type, in spirit. We thought…

We thought.

…I can't say for sure what was next. I was never good at remembering things. We could only watch as you went further and further away.

And then I fell.

It was my turn to crack. I tried to fight my inner demons, but I lost. I'd been broken before. It wasn't hard for them to win. She… I… tried to chase you away. You said you wouldn't leave. But deep down, you knew she'd… I'd… won. You saw a part of me you didn't like. And I willingly showed it to you.

You left again. I came to my senses, but I was still in denial. The Team SMG pictures on my wall did nothing to help. Every morning when I woke up, every night when I went to bed… There they were, the three of us. Me, you, him. Happy together. I looked. I hoped. When I saw them… Maybe, I thought. He'll be back tomorrow.

But you never came.

I was losing hope. Just as it was almost gone, you stopped in. You said you'd be back soon. Promise.

I was stupid enough to believe it.

Day in, day out. Same thing. I'd wait. Hope would fade. You'd appear, and promise us again.

…I wonder if you ever intended to keep them.



You haven't been in. When you have, you say nothing. Not a 'Hello', not a 'Goodbye.'

Not a 'Sorry.'

But I think I understand why. It's because I'm the one who needs to say it.

So… I'm sorry.
Sorry for the pain.
Sorry for the faith.
For the pride and hope.
For the hate and guilt.
For the years you wasted.

I'll make it easier on us. I'm going to cut it off here. Let's not drag it on longer than we must.

If you do come back, I'll accept you with open arms. I only hope you'd do the same.

But until then… let's pull to a halt and stop. We needn't run toward an endpoint that doesn't exist.

So… We come to the end of an era. Happy, yes. Also depressing.

But I think I'm ready to move on.

I've never been able to wait for someone. I think it's time I stopped waiting for you.

I'm letting you free. Do what you will with your life. I hold no impact on it any longer. Perhaps now we can be happy again.



So long,
May we one day meet again, and
Good luck.

There is no more glory for us to share.

That was a tad bit dramatic for something on the internet.

@Floo ...You don't quite understand what Team SMG is then.

And I doubt you will. Don't mock it because of this.

...*Sigh* Here I am again...caught in the crossfire...

It is not my place to offer sympathy. I however hope that no matter how sad that time will heal your wounds. That you’re able to move forwards while never learning and enduring. With all this said, I'm sorry that this sort of tragedy has befallen you.

Didn't know much at all about team SMG, but oh well. Things eventually end, whether you like it or not.
