Dear diary,

Today I asked Italy how he smiles all the time, despite everything that has happened to him. He told me that memories all the bloodshed haunt him every day, but smiling with his friends is a better fate than succumbing to grief for events of the past. He said that he uses past mistakes to avoid causing similar sorrows in the future. It’s an admirable view to have, and I think I may finally be beginning to understand him. I think I’ll try to smile more.

Dear Diary,

Sometimes, I glimpse the horror in other nations’ eyes, see the scars of wars etched onto their bodies… and I want to hug them. To remind them that although we fight, and some of us act like we can’t stand others, we are family. We are each other’s support system, the only ones who truly understand. We may do some hurtful things, but we’ll eventually make up. Because that’s what families do. And it’s only when we forget that… that is when we are truly alone.

Dear diary,

Those two… they brought light into my life. Especially Italy… I don’t what I would do without them.

Dear diary,

I hear you call my name. When I glance to see who called my name, I see no one, but hear your voice. I glance across the place to see if anyone else hears it too. But no one seems to notice the look on my face. I miss you so much. I keep telling you, but you don’t seem to hear. As tears roll down my face, I glance around the place and see you with my family and friends. The look upon your face says you’re sad. I realized it was time to go. Although I will always love you and miss you. I turn my head to see if anyone else notices you. Then I turn back and you were gone. I hear you very gently say, “I love you, goodbye Italy.”

Dear diary,

Because of our parting, my world has lost its shy. Without its lucid blues and its sturdy wings, the birds are unable to fly.  My sweetheart, because of your departure, my world has lost its ground. Without its verdant meadows and even the smiling buds, the flowers are unable to bloom. If I could see you again, my heart and soul would not be mine anymore. If I could see you again, I would be unable to prevent my tears shed for our everlasting love.

Dear diary,

Every year, Italy seems to dress as something really embarrassing. And the worst part? He’s not aware of it. How do I tell him? I’m stupid and I need to stop going to Halloween parties.
