This is the third video I produced for the AnimeIowa 2001 AMV contest, and it is the one I am most proud of; it also means a lot to me emotionally.
Let's see, where to begin... I had been seeing a girl for 3 1/2 years, and she meant more to me than anything. She was my love and my life. Somewhere along the way though, I began to take her for granted and started mistreating her... Asking for things from her that should not have been asked, treating her more like a daughter than a lover, ignoring her pleas for forgiveness... all these things I am ashamed of more than any of my other mistakes. Of course, she broke up with me. I took it badly and behaved like even more of a fool. For months we didn't talk, and for months I didn't even realize I was at fault. When I did, I had to find an artistic outlet for my despair, and this is what came out. It is my apology to her, even though she'll never see it.
After it was shown at the con, the audience was silent and my eyes were filled with tears... it is one of the most emotionally wonderful moments I've ever had. I've moved on with my life, but this is still my favorite video. I hope you like it too.
