A break-up Letter to Gatsby

My dear, Gatsby!
I haven't ever thought that I would write such a letter for you...But I have to do it now! Please, forget me before!
I must admit that things between us had a great and beautiful start.I still remember all the good things that surrounded us: the way you used to touch me, the tender words we dedicated to each other, the way you used to look at me (always with a mix of love and desire), the warmth of your body. Yet, a few months later, it seems that none of the promises that we planted in those fields we created has flourished.Unfortunately, it just didn t happen nothing remains of what looked like a growing love, besides some memories, everything else lost its enchantment fast, and just a bitter taste was left of what tasted like such a sweet candy.It was a shame, it still is a shame, because no one expects a relationship to fail. May be a distance was one of the reasons for it!I want you to know that I don 't feel good about myself or happy with what I just said. To be honest, I 'd much rather be writing about you and how wonderful and fulfilling things have been between us ever since the day we met. But, much to my dislike, there are times in life when you have to be honest, thus avoiding a small misunderstanding that could grow it something more harmful for those involved.You know, despite this decision to break up with you, I' m keeping my fingers crossed that we may touch our lives with more joy, keeping in our hearts and souls the affection and respect we 've always felt for each other. I understand, how bad you are now.
May be it was very cruel, may be you'll hate me, but I had to say it to you! I'm sure, it'll be better for us. We haven't any futute, and you understand it even better than I!
Good bye, my Gatsby! I really loved you!
Your Daisy!

Olga,
I am sure that Daisy would have written a heart-breaking letter very much like yours and would have never explained that the reason she was breaking up with Gatsby was that she had married Tom. That reveals your good insight into Daisy's character. Bravo!

Thank you, Anna Vladimirovna! ''The Great Gatsby really impressed me. I like such novels, where you can analyze the plot by yourself and try to understand feelings and thoughts of the herous, whoes lives you live while reading the book.
