“Wrote this nearly a week ago, about a person who forever changed my life,” she captioned an Instagram photo on Friday of a post on her personal blog. “Full story at peek-mag.com but in truth no one could ever really know.”
The writer also shared the piece on her Instagram Story, adding, “So grateful we had our final moment. Our clarity, clearing of the air. You changed my life. I, yours. The residual effects of your passion ripple on. You are not gone. Not in the least.”
In the blog post, titled “The Art of Healing Part V: Return,” Leasure, 27, wrote about a woman meeting up with her ex two years after they called it quits. “He was nervous, it was palpable,” the piece, published on August 27, read. “Perhaps something stronger than beer would be advised. Then again, likely not.”
She noted: “You’d sense that the story was not over, but certainly was in a different chapter, and that their plot lines had forever diverged.”
In keeping with her Instagram comment, Leasure mentioned the effects of the relationship. “In some sense they owed their lives to each other, were living the after shocks of the decisions they had once made,” she wrote.
