Don't Cry Because It's Over, Smile Because It Happened

My phone buzzed and I looked down to see a new text from my cousin. I unlocked the message and read, "I'm sorry for your loss."

My breath hitched in my throat as I quickly replied, "What did I lose?"

I waited and waited before I got the next buzz, "Oh.....You might want to check the later MCR news."

My heart nearly burst out of my chest in fear as I raced to the computer downstairs, logging onto the website I saw it for the first time...the message that broke my heart and my spirits. I saw the goodbye.

The tears started slowly for me but soon I was a sobbing mess. No this couldn't be happening, it must be some sort of sick joke. it...it must...But no, sadly my worst fears have come true. My heroes have broken up.

Just hours after the news was heard I became ill. I hadn't felt so terrible...well, ever really. My body was hot and cold at the same time, my limbs were shaking uncontrollably, I felt like I was going to throw up at any moment, and I was afraid I was going to faint. When I told my mother about these symptoms she said the cause plain and simple, "You're grieving, you do it when someone dies."

Suddenly it all made sense...I didn't just lose a band that day, I lost a friend. I felt like one of my best friends had died...and in a way they did.

This was how I learned My Chem split and even now I still cry when I think about it. But whenever the tears rush back I tell myself...Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. And I try to smile.

My Chemical Romance has done so much for me, heck they changed my life...and I am so grateful for that.

However I still can't help but be upset, not just upset but angry as well. I never once in my days thought I would ever be angry at MCR but...I am. Why you ask?

Because of their famous last words. I feel like we deserve more of an explanation. Like we deserve the truth of why our favorite band split. We are the fans, we have given so much of our love, support, time, and effort into you My Chem...so why can't you at least tell us why. Why you are leaving us like this. So sudden without even mentioning MCR5. Without a more sincere thanks.

I'm just wondering, none of these questions will be answered I'm sure, and thats fine...I just wanted them to be known. Still I thank you MCR for coming into my life anyways.

Thank you for all that you have done...we love you with all our hearts, and are prepared to carry on, just for you. We will Sing for you, we will Carry on, we will Walk This World Alone, through us your legacy will live on. You were a hell of a band Chem...You will be missed. So Long and Goodnight...
